As part of efforts to further the frontiers of the unequalled exploits of the sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, as a pan-African thinker and politician of note, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) propagating his social and political ideals, the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation (OAF), has launched a website.
The address of the colourful website is http://www.obafemiawolowofoundation.org and it was designed by Living Projects Limited and sponsored by the Foundation, which has been generating ideas for those in government at all levels through an annual special dialogue now compiled in books as invaluable contribution to literature on national development.
The founding philosophy of immortal Chief Awolowo as well as OAF’s mission/policy statement and Governing Council/Board of Trustees, books and famous quotes by the sage, pictorial records of the Foundation’s events and many more are prominent on the website.
Also featured is the novel Obafemi Awolowo Leadership Prize, which is awarded once in two years to a Nigerian, within or outside the country, who demonstrates excellence in leadership and good governance by making vital contributions to national development.
The maiden edition of the prestigious prize holds March, 2013 and will coincide with the 104 posthumous birthday of a man still being referred to as “the issue in Nigeria politics.” Visitors to the website can avail download nomination forms for the coveted prize.
