These were contained in a release signed by his media consultant, Mr. Olaide Awosanya and dated August 30, 2021.
As a Yoruba scholar and creative writer, the author used his talent and mastery of the Yoruba language to rekindle the flames of Yoruba-centricity and consciousness in spirit of its rich culture, history and diversity.
“This, I have done for many years through the publication of several books in Yoruba language, which have been assessed and approved for use in primary and secondary education in some states in the South West including Lagos and beyond, and as a Yoruba broadcaster. Some awards and endorsements have been received to my credit.
“In continuation of my quest to promote Yoruba culture, I have written this additional book, Awólọ́wọ̀ Akíkanjú Aṣíwájú (AAA) on a foremost icon of the 20th century, who had helped in unifying and reshaping the identity of the Yoruba race,” the author stated.
Recognizing the essence of the book to the new generation, the Lagos State Government has approved it for Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination 2021/2022. Oyo State Government followed suit, and extended it to students at senior level.
