Who is an Awoist?
There is a name called Awo. A name that can never fade in the history of Yorubaland and Nigeria in general. A name that the generation yet unborn will still hear of. A name a typical Yoruba man will be proud of anytime anyday.
A name with the history of first in everything in Nigeria. A name one will always be happy to hear. The name of a man who made Yoruba a peculiar ethnic group in Nigeria.
A name you will always want to be associated with. A name that always ring bell. A name you remembered not because of wealth amassed, but because of the legacies left behind. Before anyone can call himself a Christian, he or she must have Christ in behaviour and attitude.
Likewise anyone wants to potray himself as an Awoist, such person must believe in what Awo believed and stood for.
Many of our people pretend to be Awoists whereas they are not. They only honour Awo with their mouths and not in their deeds. Though they proclaim to be an Awoists and they relate very well with Awolowo family, but they are not, in all ramifications.
If anyone wishes to potray himself as an Awoist, he must have the following attributes: He must not be selfish and he must not be wicked.
He must believe in freedom for all. He must believe in selfless service. He must not believe in do or die politics, and he must believe in liberating the people.
He must not in any way exploit the people he serves, and he must believe in good gorvernance. A true Awoist must also believe in service to humanity.
These are the attributes of Awo, the Great, and his followers must also imbibe these traits.
