Awo: The Last Conversation By Moses Akin Makinde

Oral history has an exalted and treasured place in African tradition. Hence, when oral history transforms to written history, the end product is inevitably invaluable.  If a testimonial to that effect was ever needed, Moses Akin Makinde’s book, AWO: The Last Conversation provides one with its niche, form and philosophical utility.


By some fluke or fate, a feat rarely accomplished by contrivance and therefore, frequently attributed to Divine intervention; it was most propitious that Professor Makinde would become both the beneficiary and indeed, the trusted custodian of Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s intrusive, introspective and overarching last conversations before his death.  But who was Awo?  According to Makinde, he was: “a politician, political scientist, statesman, economist, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), a strategist of the highest order, a great intellectual, a man of wisdom, courage, vision and above all,  great philosopher of the twentieth century. Surely, Awo lived a life with scope and intelligent pauses” (p.33) Generally, Awo has been posthumously conferred with the honor of “the best president Nigeria never had.”
