This is one of the best books I have read in my life. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was a political giant with an extraordinary mind and talent. After early misfortunes, and a long struggle to educate himself he went to Britain in to study and obtained degrees of B.S. in Commerce and LLB in Law at University of London, and returned to Nigeria in to be a highly successfull by: AWO on the Civil War (N) Path to Nigerian Greatness (N) Voice of Reason (N) Voice of Courage (N) Voice of Wisdom (N) My March Through Prison (N) Travails of Democracy (N) A Comprehensive bibliography (N). Chief Obafemi Awolowo, or Awo, was a politician and statesman, intellectual, and one of the leading African philosophers of the twentieth century, as such best known for writing his African Platonic tract The Peoples's Republic in , and his doctrine of 'Mental Magnitude'. His cardinal social principles were the development of mind and body, in the context of contemporary, developing Africa.   I obtained a copy and read the paged book, carefully and meticulously. It all sank in well and I have ever since admired the subject of the book with deeper respect. In , at the request of the Obafemi Awolowo Awoist Group, I delivered a lecture at the Student Union Hall, entitled, “AWO IS STILL RELEVANT.”.

Beni on (Ela) ni gba ni la n'Ife, Oba - a - mola.   In , when the self style military president, General IBB named Awo to serve on the political Burean committee. Awo in his letter of rejection told IBB and the world that the Burean's job would be an “exercise in futility”.He then asked members of Burean to read his book “Thoughts on Nigeria constitution” for his contribution. An important figure in Nigerian history, Awolowo’s ideals and accomplishments continue to influence Nigerian politics. He wrote several books, including Awo: The Autobiography of Chief Obafemi Awolowo () and Thoughts on Nigerian Constitution (). This article was most recently revised and updated by Amy McKenna, Senior Editor.

  Ifa In Yoruba Thought System is a great read that extends our perspective on Ifa and how Ifa as a cultural spirituality relates to “philosophy”. In this book, Omotade Adegbindin covers ontology, epistemology, and ethics in the Ifa Corpus. He also explores both literacy and the development crisis in Africa from an Ifa perspective, which he supports with Odu Ifa. Thoughts of awo. Book. Thoughts of back benchers. Public Figure.

He did it in his book written about 30yrs ago titled ‘The trouble with Nigeria’. The battle against. With all their book knowledge and intellectual stature, both Zik and Awo were equally culpable in one of the greatest foul-ups in Nigerian political history. Regardless of what transpired in in the Western House of Assembly the fact is that by the elections both Zik and Awo were in a position to become both President and Prime-Minister in whatever permutation that they might have.
