Description DRUM Ð FEB 1954 Ð OBAFEMI AWOLOWO ORGANISES THE WEST. NIGED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:FEB 1954 Ð Obafemi Awolowo Organises The West Ð Obafemi Awolowo was chiefly responsible for organizing Western Nigeria. He started with Yoruba students in London and a cultural group called the Egbe Omo Odudwa emerged. He then focused on the Yoruba people in Western Nigeria which culminated in a new political force Ð the action Group. Obafemi Awolowo is the most powerful in Western Nigeria. He rose from a fatherless, almost helpless village boy to a leader of six million Western Nigerians. He is leader of the action group , now in power in Western Nigeria, and one of three Nigerian premiers to emerge from the haze and dust of West African politics after Kwame Nkrumah of the Gold Coast. He is author of The path to Nigerian freedom and an unwavering leader along his chosen path. ( Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
