Obafemi awolowo

Shortly after the inauguration of the Students Representative Council of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti, the management of the institution created an opportunity for the council at the 2017 Obafemi Awolowo memorial lecture held on Monday, March 6th 2017 at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Lagos.

This opportunity, the first of its kind in the history of the institution, was to avail the young students to be part of the lecture where they could learn and key into the laudable and indelible legacies of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo when he was a youth and eventually a statesman.

The annual lecture organized under the auspices of the Obafemi Awolowo foundation had Professor (Senator) Banji Akintoye as resource person, with the theme The Awolowo Legacy and its Message to the Nigerian Youths.

Delivering the lecture, Professor Akintoye urged the audience especially the youth to search for knowledge in their various fields of interest.

The academic luminary stressed the need for rulers and leaders to respect their subjects and followers as a necessary tool for survival and success. “If you are arrogant, our people will force you out. Whatever you do as a ruler/ leader do it with them and not for them. Take part”, Professor Akintoye admonished.

According to the resource person, people loved and trusted the legendary Obafemi Awolowo because of his team spirit.

The professor further urged the youth to take life serious and engage in profitable ventures. He equally challenged them to develop interest in the history of great men, adding that Awolowo's dedication to seeking knowledge and information gave him an edge over his contemporaries.

He discouraged the audience from being individualistic and defeatist.

The student Representative Council was led by Akinnibosun Abayomi Victor, the speaker of the student's body. Some staff of the Student Affairs Division as well as others from the office of the Vice Chancellor were present.
