On the 19th of April 2013, the ‘Unbreakable’ Chief Oluwole Bolade Akanni Awolowo was laid to rest in his home-town, Ikenne-Remo, Ogun State.  The funeral service was held at Our Saviours Anglican Church, Ikenne-Remo, Ogun stae. The only surviving son of the Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo died at the age of 70.

Besides being the son of one of Nigeria’s icons, Oluwole Awolowo was also the Publisher and Vice Chairman of the African Newspapers of Nigeria (ANN) Plc, (publishers of the Tribune titles).

The befitting burial which had similar traits to his father who passed on in late 80s, was well attended by known Nigerian politicians, church leaders, industrialists, publishers, ambassadors and many more from all walks of life.

Labaran Maku, the Minister of Information who led the Federal Government’s delegation described Awolowo’s death as “a colossal loss to the nation and the entire Yoruba race”.

“Throughout his life, despite the fact that his family name could have opened doors for him at the corridors of power, (Chief Awolowo) maintained a very healthy relationship that is based on honour and family tradition, and he lived on the principles this family has taught Nigeria. Those attributes are embedded in the motto of the Tribune titles – truth, courage and fairness” – Labaran Maku. (Tribune.com.ng)

The reception was held at Obafemi Awolowo Square in Ikenne with Evangelist Ebenezer Obey as the entertainer.
