"An Awolowo Never Dies"
"What we do in life echoes in eternity". Chief Obafemi Jeremiah Awolowo needs little or no introduction.
We all know him as the architect of modern Nigeria and a leader who through is selflessness bequeathed his people and future generations of Nigerians an unenviable and unequalled record of achievements in every walk of life.
Subsequently, Awolowo's achievement as a premier in the old western Nigeria is seconded to none among his contemporaries as he was the first to introduce Free Universal Primary Education, the first television station, establishment of farm settlement, Industrial Estate,first modern sports stadium in Africa, free medical services and introduction of minimum wage of 50k per day all the great Awo achieved within 5year as premier.
It behoves to resonate this one once again as we celebrates Late Obafemi Awolowo posthumous birthday anniversary today.
