The life of the death is a place in the memory of the living.. Marcus Tillius Cicero
Olu Awoyinfa is now gone. While he lived he had his hands in the creation of many Branches of NSE including all the branches in Lagos. The titan is gone but his legacies and works are all there for us to emulate and built upon.
Young. Old. We must strive to work in such a way that when we depart, our works and people we have inspired, directly or indirectly are continuing to carry us through the living memories
A sage said there are three ways to be immortal..educate a child, plant a tree or build a community.. so that when u are no more you live through these people and works.
He live such and simple and yet humble life while making a lot of professionals find their feet. . No wonder, the NSE president Otis Anyaeji took a deep reflection on the work of this great man and concluded.. “this is the best president NSE never had.”
