Obafemi Awolowo Addressing The Largest Crowd Ever Recorded In Nigeria’s Political History In 1983
The late chief Obafemi Awolowo was a crowd puller of the highest class. In February 1983, while running for president, he stormed the Mapo Hall in Ibadan, Oyo State to launch his campaign as the candidate for the UPN. As at that time, Awolowo broke the records when he pulled what was recorded as the largest crowd ever recorded in Nigeria’s political campaign. The picture below shows part of the crowd and Awolowo.
