AWOLOWO 30th ANNIVERSARY

WE ARE COMMITTED TO KEEPING AWO'S LEGACIES
—Tokunbo Awolowo Dosumu

 

The Executive Director and founding member of the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation, Dr Tokunbo Awolowo Dosumu, again reiterated the commitment of the foundation to keeping the positive memories of the sage alive.

She said the choice of the lecture was in tune with Awo's disposition towards the youth as the obvious leaders of the future.

According to her, guest speaker, Professor Akintoye, was an example of such disposition since he was one of the few living Nigerians that learned at the feet of the sage as a youth.

She expressed her appreciation and delight at the support the foundation had been enjoying from Nigerians since it was set up a few years ago.

Other dignitaries at the event were the Obi of Onitsha and Patron, Obafemi Awolowo Foundation, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe; Afenifere chieftain, Chief Ayo Adebanjo; Executive Director, Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Mr Segun Awolowo; former World Court judge, Prince Bola Ajibola; national coordinator, Oodua People's Congress (OPC), Chief Gani Adams; former secretary of the sage, Mr Odia Ofeinun; NADECO chieftain, General Alani Akinrinade; immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan; Chief and Chief (Mrs) Adekunle Ojora, Vice Chancellor, University of Medical Services, Professor Friday Okonofua; former chairman of board publications and former Editor, Daily Times, Chief Areoye Oyebola, among others.
