As the Executive Director of the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation, President Buhari affirmed that Dr Awolowo-Dosunmu has upheld the legacies of good and free education, effective and accessible healthcare systems that indelibly inscribed her father’s political philosophy in the history of Nigeria, with many still testifying of the benefits after several decades.
