This piece is a report on Afa Ajura's visit to Nigerian Independence festivities as a member of the Ghana delegation, which had been sent by President Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah in 1960. In the text, Afa Ajura lists some of the Ghanaians who went to Nigeria, important Nigerian people (big men) they met, the things they saw, the fact that all things they were given were complimentary (transportation, food); important cities and states visited, including Kano. This piece is a fact-based report, and contains no moral, spiritual, or social lessons or commentary, although it does implicate Afa Ajura in national politics at the time.
