Description

“Obafemi Awolowo was an individual who was not only ahead of his time; he was ahead of his environment and light-years ahead of his peers. As a social philosopher, he was not content merely to see ahead but to prescribe confidently ahead.”- Professor Wole Soyinka. Lessons in Leadership and Legacy is a series on leadership studies which aim to raise the level of civic education of the Nigerian citizens, instill the skills and spirit of public service and civic engagement, and as well engender a positive, productive and progressive understanding of leadership qualities in them. Obafemi Awolowo, the first in the series, is a collection of articles on the man, Obafemi Awolowo. A visionary leader, who was able to identify and utilise the genius in other people, Awolowo, popularly called Awo, was a philosopher-king, erudite scholar, lawyer, writer, politician, visionary leader, and thinker. He was a man of great vision, capacity, drive and determination, who served as the Premier of Western Nigeria, Federal Commissioner of Finance, and was founder of both the Action Group and Unity Party of Nigeria. This book espouses the ideals, achievements, values and legacy of this sage, a great organiser and mobiliser of human and material resources par excellence.
