Osun Sets-up Awolowo Centre For Philosophy, Ideology, Good Governance. by OsunIfe: 6:01pm On Nov 20, 2012
In its efforts to ensure the preservation of the teachings and ideology of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the state government of Osun has set up an institute in his name.

According to the governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, the institute would be called Awolowo Centre for Philosophy, Ideology and Good Governance and it is located at the former Osun State Transport Head Office at Ogo-Oluwa in Osogbo, the state capital.

It would be headed by Professor Moses Akin Makinde, an erudite Professor of Philosophy, who has studied and written extensively on many aspects of political and philosophical thoughts of Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

“The centre will not only further immortalize Chief Obafemi Awolowo, a profound philosopher and ideologue, who blazed the trail in putting up good governance into effect in the old Western Region of Nigeria, the centre is dedicated to providing qualitative learning, research and discourse in the areas of philosophy, ideology and good governance.

It is hoped that the centre would attract scholars, politicians, and persons with interest in philosophy, ideology and good governance with a view to deepening the humanist and democratic values enunciated by Chief Awolowo,” said Aregbesola.

The governor further stated that the centre is the state of Osun’s contribution to strengthening democracy and good governance, according to the governor, “genuine and profound thinking is imperative for genuine and profound action, particularly in the areas of democracy and good governance”.

This whole Awo fixation is now looking like a decoy from the dire realities in the SW.
Why not build schools, hospitals , orphanages for the living rather than fixating on a dead man
Odes !

Moderators, well-done. keeping hiding posts ok? the truth is better but we will keep saying it. it's high time this goat-4kers stop using Awo's name to maga us. Plan for the living and let the dead rest. What exactly is working in osun state presently except all the lies we see on papers. The time where the name of Awolowo wins election in south west is over. Your work does it now, so Ogbeni, u better start working or get set to return back to ur Lord in Lagos.

This is really interesting... Anambra should set up an Ikemba Ideological centre as well.

In my own opinion, this will help with regional integration and clear understanding of the ideologies of these regions.

Ikemba Ideological Centre? Haba!!! Wetin dem want learn for that kind place? Secession or what? To make it bad, The man hardly has any book where his Ideologies are documented, just a fire brigade war to his name. The earlier we realize Ikemba is not the Opposite of Awolowo the better.

I must go there and study. I really like Chief Awo. So sound, so shrewd. 25 yrs after his death , the Igbos still live in the paranoid of his existence. He brought civilization to Nigeria through TV, education, investment, sport and vision.

I think the best thing to imortalize him is the Naira we spend today. He coined the word Naira.

Great Awo.
