IDI-ABA by Oyeronke Alake Lawoyin
Book DescriptionBaptist Girls' School, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, is a training ground for Godly mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers who have produced outstanding Godly men and women, who have contributed enormously to the positive development of the nation of Nigeria. How did this institution achieve such an enviable objective? The foundation of any nation depends on the strength of the home that produces its citizens. The structure of any nation, however strong, will sooner or later, or sooner than later collapse and disintegrate if the foundation is weak. This is what Abraham Lincoln had in mind when he said, "The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world." These words resonate through the ages. The following pages and pictures record the testimonies of the builders of the nation who benefited from the selfless and sacrificial efforts of foreign missionaries and Nigerians who produced and developed "Idi-Aba."
