A Yoruba version of the autobiography of the late sage- Obafemi Awolowo, is a brilliant idea of reliving his life and legacies in the analysis of Nigeria history..

Seeing Dr Yemi Faronbi aka Uncle Yemi, in the caption also put smile on my face. He’s a foremost media guru, politician per excellence and former Ambassador. An intelligentsia of top-notch, who is well versed in IFA corpus.

Good.
