Adetokunbo Kayode, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) (born 31 October 1958 in Ondo State, Nigeria) held several positions in the cabinet of President Umaru Yar'Adua and was appointed Defence Minister of Nigeria in April 2010 by the then Acting President Goodluck Jonathan.
Adetokunbo hails from Ikaram-Akoko in Ondo State and holds the traditional title Omoba as a Yoruba prince. He has a Bachelor of Law from University of Lagos. Kayode was counsel to the Federal Government, the People's Democratic Party (Nigeria), the Independent National Electoral Commission. He is married to his wife Funmilayo; they have five children (3 boys and 2 girls).
After the 2007 elections, President Umaru Yar'Adua appointed him Minister of Culture & Tourism. While he was minister, the National Council of Arts and Culture hosted the first African Arts and Crafts Expo, AFAC 2008. He was praised for completing the tourism master plan. In November 2008 he was removed from this job when the cabinet was dissolved, but in December 2008 was appointed Minister of Labour and Productivity. When Goodluck Jonathan became Acting President, he replaced Attorney General Mike Aondoakaa with Kayode on 10 February, but on 17 March dismissed his entire cabinet. Kayode was replaced as Minister of Labour by Ibrahim Kazaure.
