Obafemi Awolowo and the Making of Remo

Nolte Insa

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter illustrates how colonial rule created opportunities for participation in local affairs, and how the widespread adoption of Christianity in Remo both increased consent for the dominant role of Ofin and Sagamu, which were privileged in local church hierarchies, and for Remo's separation from Ijebu-Ode. It was in this atmosphere that the young Obafemi Awolowo entered Remo politics.
