I want to urge Afenifere, the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, and governors in the South West states to immortalise the late Sir Olaniwun Ajayi, who recently answered the supreme call.
Sir Olaniwun Ajayi left good virtues for all Yorubas to emulate, and in his life time, he worked tirelessly for the advancement of the Yoruba cause.
Baba wanted the Yoruba nation to thrive in a progressive Nigeria. It is a pity that Nigeria has lost one of its greatest and courageous leaders.
I, therefore, want to urge the governors in the South West states, and particularly that of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, to rename schools after the late Ajayi.
Baba was also a lawyer, and it will be better for an annual lecture to be instituted in his name.
All these will go a long way in appreciating all the good he did for the Yoruba race while he was on this side of the world.
With this, I want to appeal to the children and immediate family of Baba Ajayi not to be too downcast, as Baba did his best for Yorubaland, and Nigeria as a whole.
Baba Ajayi also died at a very ripe age, while leaving behind a good legacy.
It is, therefore, important for Yoruba sons and daughters to be appreciative of the struggles Baba embarked upon for the race. May God grant Baba eternal rest.
