Although our correspondent gathered that Oluwole passed on in the early hours of Sunday in her residence at Ibafo, Ogun State, the detail of her death was scanty as of the time of filing this report.

Reactions from President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as well as from scholars and intellectuals, trailed the news of the philosopher’s passage.

The President, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Monday, noted that the deceased had through her teachings and works celebrated the Yoruba culture, history and worldview and reminded the world that within pristine traditions there were values that promoted the ideals of democracy, fairness, equity and justice.
