First, your English alone can make someone commit suicide.
Secondly, you are shouting awolowo committed suicide, talking of someone that he has died and rotten, yet his name has value even in death while your living father father is so valueless that even ordinary goat will spit on him as a result of his uselessness. A dead and rotten awolowo has value than your living father grin, if I may ask, what is your father's name. Let's see how his name has infinitesimal value despite he is a living soul. Even a stone is valuable than your father. You, your father, your entire race can't stop talking about great awolowo even after 30 years of death. Tell us, who has ever said a word about your father's existence for a second in his neighborhood despite he's a living soul? The uselessness of your father is not a concern to you. You continue talking of awolowo till you will die.
Note, I didn't mean to insult you o, I only want to tell you different between awolowo in death and your living father. Shalom. grin cheesy

Like I said, his rotten body has value compared to your living father. Ask anyone about your father, they will ask who is he, ask a small boy about awolowo, he recognizes him. The question is how valuable is your father. What did he do that they can talk about in your street. grin. This Mumu said he was not given a state burial grin, what else can one say to typical pig of the nation. Even his influence gave his wife a state burial where all the 36 state governors were present including the president of the nation. Now, what influence can your father give your mother?

How valuable is your useless father to your street. It is a question your father needs to answer. Even a fowl is more valuable than him. Can your father stop talking of awolowo?, Now the question is who on planet earth talk about your father? Who is he?You asking of his kids, his son is the head of NEPC. How many of your father's children are successful? A school was named after him. Even many road are named after him in your backyard there in the east. When will they name a paper after your father?

OBAFEMI AWOLOWO
He enrolled at the University of London as an External Student and graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Commerce (Hons.). He went to the UK in 1944 to study law at the University of London and was called to the Bar by the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple on 19 November 1946.[4][6]

Apart from his face being on 100 Naira notes, some other achievements of the late sage who hailed from Ikenne, Ogun State are catalogued below;

1.) He named Nigeria’s national currency as ‘Naira’ when he was the Federal Commissioner for Finance. The late sage took the name of Nigeria and collapsed it as ‘Naira'

2.) Awolowo introduced free primary education for all and free health care for children in the Western Region.

3. )He established the first television station in Africa in 1959.

4. )He also erected the first skyscraper in tropical Africa:the Cocoa House (still the tallest in Ibadan).
5.) Awo as fondly called was conferred by President Shehu Shagari with the title of the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR), the first and only non-president to be so honoured in recognition of his sterling qualities and contributions to the service of the country.

6.) He was the first individual in the modern era to be named Leader of the Yorubas (Yoruba: Asiwaju Omo Oodua), a title which has come over time to be conventionally ascribed to his successors as the recognized political leader of the Yoruba peoples of Nigeria.

7.) The man widely believed by admirers to be the best President Nigeria never had was the first Leader of Government Business and Minister of Local Government and Finance and first Premier of the Western Region under Nigeria’s parliamentary system, from 1952 to 1959.

8.) In 1949 he founded the Nigerian Tribune, the oldest surviving private Nigerian newspaper, which he used to spread nationalist consciousness among his fellow Nigerians.

9.) The party he founded, Action Group was the first to move the motion for Nigeria’s independence in the federal parliament and he obtained internal self-government for the Western Region in 1957.

10.) The University of Ife was renamed Obafemi Awolowo University on 12 May 1987 in honour of Chief Obafemi Awolowo first premier of the Western Region of Nigeria, whose brainchild the university was.

For the Mumu asking for great awolowo's achievement, these are part of his achievements in his life time. Now can you tell us what the achievement of your fathers are. Even tell us the achievement of your coward ojukwu.
