Preview

This chapter focuses on the growing pull of nationalist politics in the 1940s and 1950s, which saw a great expansion of political participation in Remo. Aware of Ofin's historical struggle vis-à-vis other Remo towns, Awolowo used his own political party to revalidate rather than overcome local political rivalries.
