Awolowo’s Evergreen Words on Marble
The words of the late sage, Obafemi Awolowo, are still very much fresh in our minds and instructive to the Nigerian authority.

July 29 1966 On My Mind: Did General Aguiyi-Ironsi Deserve To Die? (Part 2)
Ironsi’s Role In The January 15 1966 Coup The evidence that shows that General Ironsi and the plotters of the supposedly Igbo coup of January 15 1966 were diametrically opposed to each other is highly significant.
