June 12 Posthumous Awards: Is Pa Alfred Rewane the forgotten hero?

AS laudable as the presidential pronouncement regarding the recognition of June 12 as Democracy Day, and its decision to bestow National Awards on winners of the election – MKO Abiola and Babagana Kingibe, along with the erudite lawyer, the late Gani Fawehinmi – may have been deemed a welcome development, the failure to recognise and give special recognition to the laudable and selfless role played by the late Pa Alfred Ogbeyiwa Rewane could be described not only as lopsided, but also smacks of insensitivity on the part of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
