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
A special type of psychosis, if u ask me!

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

He asked a simple question, why didn't azikwe head Eastern region, why did he want to rule western region dt belongs to the yorubas??

Why not elect a yoruba as a head of Eastern region but no, he elected eastern for East and wanted to impose himself, an Easterner on the west..

God forbid

This thread has strengthened my resolve on the tribalism embedded in the average yoruba man.

I've never seen a tribe as divided as Eboes.

Anambrans are the real Igbos.
Ebonyi people are the fake and poor Igbos
While the rest are figure heads.


Now you want us to allow Azikiwe (a man that watch Gowon massacre 3 million fools) to divide the Yorubas just like the ipob pigs.

Pa Awolowo did well.

No matter the epistle written against him, the Yorubas will forever reference him and hold him in high esteem.

His name & legacies is written in sands of time.

A man who beats his contemporaries hands down in achievements & other.

Obafemi Jeremiah Awolowo is his name

h.macauley a youruba man handed ncnc to zik an igbo man. Then there was no tribalism . Even the alafin saw zik as a friend and political leader. Till the trubalistic and divisive awolowo came along

Thank God Awolowo came and disposed Zik from the west..

Only God knows they damage Zik wud have down to our beloved south west.

Zik in his own sense thinks an igbo man can rule eastern region but he wunt want a yoruba man head western region.

Thank God Awolowo was smarter than him

if the yorubas had a politician of ziks caliber iono y they didnt go and contest in the east. But in the west zik an igbo man had more followers than even Awolowo... if course he had to resort to tribalism . Which itself was quit new.

The difference is clear, one was responsible for his people's success (Awolowo) while the other sold his people to Northerners out of greed as if that wasn't enough he watched Gowon massacre 3million of his people without doing anything.

Today, we can all see the resultant, whilst Yorubas are arguably the most successful in African, our arch rival with the population of 45million are seen as second class citizens, imagine Ijaws are even more important than Ibos.

truth is when Awolowo became leader the west became know as the wild wild west. Akintola and Awolowo locked horns, awolowo started speaking condescendingly to akenzua and ovie what was the result,? Midwest left the west. Awolowo knew just one thing tribalism, that's why in other parts of the country he isnt seen as a national icon.

He will always remain a tribal regional leader. Never will he be referred to as a nationalist. Enahoro, Azikiwe, isong, ciroma, Hassan, belewa will always stand tall above the local champ

university of Ibadan, unn where all zik.

Wait when you say Awolowo did this and that hope you know Awolowo at best was a regional leader. His policies wasnt national and far reaching unlike the policies of dr azikiwe...... before you go off , just reminding you

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

The question is WHY WOULD ZIK WANT TO BE THE PREMIER IN THE WEST WHILE HE LEFT THE EAST IN ANOTHER IBOMANS HAND?

if you can't answer that, you can't question awolowos tribalism after all NO YORUBAMAN WANT TO BE PREMIER IN THE EAST
