Nonsense. NCNC had loyalty from Yorubas because it was always a Yoruba party before it spread to the East. It was formed and led by a Yoruba, Herbert Macaulay, who upon his death handed it over to Azikiwe. The Yorubas following Zik did that as a part of their loyalty to NCNC.
Zik is the most tribalitic leader of them all: he should have partnered with AG to be the PM, rather he preferred to be a ceremonial President/Governor General to the North.
He also wanted to be Premier in the West after installing another Igbo as Premier in the East instead of ensuring he went to the East as Premier and working to install a Yoruba in the West using the same party that he inhreited from them.

Same way Igbos come to Lagos to prosper yet can't stop themselves from hating the indigenes that helped them prosper in their midst, always thinking they are smarter than the people who created the environment that makes them excel. Zik should have realized he was a nobody without Herbert Macaulay and the NCNC he gave him to lead without any nepotism and not attempt to rule those who graciously let him lead the party

You really expected zik to partner with awolowo after all awolowo did to zik ?
SMH

Why didn't the north partner with awolowo ...no body trusted the man to keep to his word ...that's how bad he was
Saduna hated the igbos but preferred them over awolowo

Stop trying bro twist history ...zik is and would always be know as a pan Nigerian ..you can never take that away . He was loved by the north more than igbos loved him

Zik was born in the North, so was always a pan-Northerner.
So of course, the North would want to deal with him rather than Awolowo who was obviously too smart and progressive for the North.

Also, what did Awolowo do to Zik? He only ensured a Yoruba led Yorubaland. Why is that such a big deal? Would the Igbo allow a Yoruba be premier of the East then?
Only an Igboman will be quarrelling with you that you didnt allow him cheat you on your own property

Zik schooled in america in the 1920s. Then the racism was mad. When he came back to africa , the racism he experienced while studying made himstarte a movement that saw to the expulsion of white men in Ghana and nigeria mainly, where these countries got independence . Zik wasnt interested in my brother this my brother that because he was very well read and exposed person. He was more of a pan african , which is why people from the south east despise him.,( yes they do,.. thier hero is ojuku) now this man Awolowo was all about my people ... Zia was all about national while Awolowo just couldn't get past regional shenanigans

this isnt about zik. Alafin saw zik as a political leader. Zik was the most popular political icon. Of course awolowo had nothing else but to play the tribal card. He brought tribalism period

Fyi. Herbert macaulay that handed over the party to zik was youruba, the members where youruba,,,, it was peaceful. Until obafemi Awolowo started spewing tribal diatribes

you can create a thread and ask whatever you feel like asking. However its important everyone knows the reason y Nigerians re not nationalists. Maybe if Awolowo hadn't come with his tribalism Nigeria would have evolved a bit. Like Ghana devoid of senseless tribalism.

Its okay

Awo introduced tribalism into southern politics. Zik tasted the bitter pills and left the SW to their fate. Operation Wetie was the repercussion.

Awo’s political immaturity was exposed with his life and death fight with Akintola - where humans were poured acid and properties burnt to the ground. Infact the SW almost turned to a war zone had the military not interfered. The khaki boys coup saved the Yoruba’s from another inter tribal crisis similar to Kiriji before the coming of the British - a situation where brothers feasted on brothers all for territorial rights.

when creating this thread I did not make reference to ibo people neither am I iboid, but its typical when unsure people dont know what to say the grab straws, the way awolowo did by bringing tribalism just because he couldn't compete even his own people saw the clear diff.

Btw iono who started racism anywhere, but the father of tribalism in nigeria is chief obafemi Awolowo. Tnx

of course a good section of the people didn't see him as a leader or someone to be trusted. That sort of infighting never occured b4 they loved and respected zik.

Stop giving unnecessary excuse. A trablistic person will always be no matter where he was born.... Some tribalist yorubas here that hate Igbos were born in the east likewise trablist igbos that hate yorubas were born in west especially Lagos...


Who even told you that awolowo is smart? Zik is smarter than him by far... Awolowo is just
tribalistic. Stop giving excuse
