gowon, atiku to launch adebanwi

The name of the politician Obafemi Awolowo is a household name in Nigeria. He was an outstanding and influential politician, especially in western Nigeria. Behind the man and next to him stood his wife Hannah Awolowo. Just short of two months ago Hannah passed away.

Later this month a book on her life will be published.  One of those who will take part in the launch is the former president Yakubu Gowon, who hails from the Plateau State in the center of the country.
