Olaleye Falore (1962) had this to say about him:
Pa T.B. Ogundeko (1947) will be remembered by many Old Boys for different (great) things he did or said to them when he was alive. I can recollect what he told us, UI Undergraduates in 1972/73 when he was there to deliver a Lecture on "Life in the Army". He, as an Army Colonel, said among other statements, "If you are very proud, don't come and join the Army as a University graduate", That warning was apt for some of us at that time, and I'm eternally grateful to him for it. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
