The Original founders of Action Group Party. Led by Chief Obafemi Jeremiah Awolowo. March 26th , 1950, the party was later dissolved on January 16th, 1966.
The  Action Group (AG) was a Nigerian political party established in Ibadan on March 21, 1951, by Chief Obafemi Awolowo. The party was founded to serve as the platform for realizing his preliminary objective of mobilizing Western Nigerians to forestall the NCNC control of the Western Region and the subsequent aim of cooperating with other nationalist parties to win independence for Nigeria. It benefited immensely from the relationships developed in the Egbe Omo Oduduwa formed in Awolowo's days in London as a student. The party suffered a major crisis in 1962, the popular "Wetie Crisis" through out South West Nigeria. The party never recovered from the fall of that crisis. #history #heritage #cultures #africanstorytelling #ASIRIMagazine #yoruba #obafemiawolowo #bolaige #actiongroup #westernregion #politicsnation #founders #statesman
