HID Awolowo will be the second prominent Yoruba personality in recent times to be buried on their birthday.
The Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), which was founded by her late husband Chief Awolowo in the Second Republic, held a farewell programme for her yesterday, describing her as a true mother for all.
President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be attending the burial ceremony.
Osinbajo, who is an in-law of the Awolowos arrived at Ikenne, yesterday, while the president is expected to do so today.
