Chief Victor Babaremilekun Adetokunbo Fani-Kayode

Chief Victor Babaremilekun Adetokunboh Fani-Kayode, Q.C., SAN, CON (1921–1995) was a leading Nigerian politician, aristocrat, nationalist, statesman and lawyer. He was elected deputy premier of the Western Region of Nigeria in 1963 and he played a major role in Nigeria's legal history and politics from the late 1940s until 1995. Family background and role in national history Fani-Kayode hailed from a prominent and well educated Yoruba family of Ife stock from south-western Nigeria. His grandfather, the Rev. Emmanuel Adedapo Kayode, was an Anglican Priest who had got his Master of Arts degree from Fourah Bay College, which at that time was part of Durham University. This happened in 1885. His father, Victor Adedapo Kayode, studied law and graduated from Cambridge University in 1921, was called to the Middle Temple in 1922, and went on to become a prominent lawyer and then judge in Nigeria. His mother was Mrs. Aurora Kayode, née Fanimokun, who was the daughter of the respected Rev. Joseph Fanimokun, also an Anglican priest. He had also gotten his Master of Arts degree from Fourah Bay College and later went on to become the Principal of the famous CMS Grammar School in Lagos, serving from 1896 to 1914. This was a missionary school that was founded by Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther. In July, 1958, he successfully moved the motion for Nigeria's independence in the Federal House of Assembly in Lagos. He argued that independence should take place on the 2nd of April, 1960 (the minutes of Hansard, 1958; Richard Sklar's "Nigeria's political parties:Power in an Emergent African Nation", World Press, p. 269; p. 269; Professor Onabamiro's "Glimpses in Nigeria's History", p. 140). In 1959, there was a further motion that was moved in the Nigerian Parliament asking for a slight amendment to the Fani-Kayode motion of July, 1958. This new motion, which was moved by Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, asked that the 2nd April, 1960 date for independence, which had already been accepted and approved by Parliament and which had been acquiesced to by the British colonial authorities, should be shifted from the 2nd of April of that year to the 1st of October instead. This motion of amendment was subsequently passed and approved by Parliament and it was acquiesced to by the British, and that is how the date for Nigeria's independence, the 1st of October, 1960, was finally arrived at.
