Let's call a spade a spade.... he was the genesis

When a hand shake became an embrace, it might eventually become a wrestle match.
Awo with his education and exposure already knew what Zik and his Igbo gang were up to.

The same cannot be said for Alafin, the ONLY way to stop the impending catastrophy, is to dethrone the " Gbewudani ", that calls himself an Alafin.
You see Alafin's forefathers have always defend Yorubaland, but this particular Alafin CANNOT read between the lines.
Thank God for Awolowo, Yorubaland will probably be struggling to get out of Igbo subjugation now.
I shudder to imagine, what if Zik was the premier of Western Nigeria during the Biafran war, it would have been an easy annexation of Yoruba land.
After years of slavery to white man, another 100 years of colonization, na to enter another round of servitude to Igbos?.
God bless Awolowo for being a man of foresight.

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

Sadauna saw a mumu, that will be easy to deal with than Awolowo.
So what did Zik benefitted from the union, other than being a powerless ceremonial president.
Awo will never agree to such and this is a fact.

you people r quick to say nonsenze about the Igbos like u all r actually smart ,, Igbos r the smartest africians , in all areas there is an Igbo man standing out , if not that Nigeria is a nepotic country, u think being president , or any position at all would be a problem for an Igbo man ? The Igbos r up to the task , but marginalization, tribalistism, wickedness has stood in their way . The fact a Yoruba man or Hausa man has been president is no validation that u all are smarter than the Igbos , cause realistically u guys are not .

Yorubas always occupy at least 65% leaving the remaining 35% of others for share? But we don't chest beat.

Greatness is not limited to selling of spare parts, gala and Asha****.

Greatness is when you are able to excel in all aspects including politics (most important)

That's why we Yorubas don't brag, empty vessel makes the loudest noise.

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

Wahala le ko ara yin si, those who are roasting and making suya of Igbos in the North are not tribalists, they are nationalists like Azikiwe.
The moment they can't fleece you, you become their enemy, they are never content with what they have, always scheming to steal from others..

National that left Igbos in the sorry state they are today.
There is no profit in subservient politics, it's 50/50 or no deal.
Igbos discovered that the purpose of the merger has been defeated, they thought the North though mumu by natre, will be stupid enough to hand the control of the country to Azikiwe, unfortunately dream dies first.
Ever wander what led to the Jan 66 coup?, and the counter coup, the progrom and the civil war?.

You write as if Yorubas were not also killed in the north and even killed right in their back yard.

What tribalism do you want to exhibit that you haven't shown before? From the very beginning Yorubas have been chronic tribalists, nothing you say will ever make me believe otherwise.

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

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

The Difference is clear. Let's say Awo was having a sound British Education and Zik an American Education. They used NIGERIA as the Arena to play their Games. And The FEUDAL CHAMPIONS scattered them.

Well, you ended up confirming the topic. Yorubas were not tribalistic until Awolowo happened to them. read again what you wrote and the essay and let it all sink into your skull. Or are you saying Yorubas were only loyal to NCNC because of Herbert Marculay? if so, why were Yorubas still loyal to NCNC during Ziks tenure, and also why would NCNC allow Zik to rule if they wer tribalistic? Once again, Awolowo started it all.

Btw iono who started racism anywhere, but the father of tribalism in nigeria is chief obafemi Awolowo. Tnx
If you want to be an historian the least you could do is get it right. This is how you people invite trouble on yourselves with your half-baked intellectualism. The same keypad you used to start the thread, you could have used it to ask Google about tribalism in Nigeria. Was it awolowo that asked Ahmadu Bello to suppress the minorities in the north? I suggest you do a proper research on the subject before you're taken for a rabble rouser

What is the result of his partnership with Sardauna? Three years of brutal civil war which you people lost woefully and 50 years of perpetual slavery and uncertain future.

No matter how bad Awolowo was, he wouldn't have done a quarter of the damage the Fulani has done to Igbo.

How could anyone be so stupid to partner with people who see you as infidels and less human?

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
You should understand the terms you're using. Awo was a nationalist. Albeit a Yoruba nationalist. He believed in the existence of the Yoruba nation within the complex arrangement called Nigeria. He didn't believe his tribe was the best and deserved everything which is the mindset of tribalists. What he wanted instead was an autonomous nation within a nation. He even postulated this for the minorities. Which was what was used against him to create the mid-west.

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
zik believed in AFRICA.
don't mind these local warlords who are trying to bring zik down to the level of their tribal warchiefs.
Awolowo of the western region,Zik of Africa.
