A non-governmental organisation, Edoni-Iza Freemen Educational Foundation has called on the Federal Government to dedicate a day to be called Gani Fawehinmi Day to give people the opportunity to promote good ideologies and patriotism.
The President of the group, Comrade Lucky Isiki, who spoke in Yenagoa on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the death of the late constitutional lawyer said Chief Gani Fawehinmi, was too noble for Nigerians to forget him easily and sweep his ideals under the carpet.
He therefore called on the youths of the Niger Delta to imbibe the virtue of the late social crusader and also embrace education so as to be in better position to fight the ills of the society.
The late Fawehinmi spent the greater part of his life fighting the cause of the Nigerian masses and agitating for good governance and a better Nigeria. He died on September 5, 2009.
