    This image cannot be downloaded as there is an error in how it was placed in Flickr. The solution is to find the picture using google image search and download from there

    Cool - the picture is used here As you see, Prest is a poor image. Could you load to Flickr... but you must give a license like this one or wiki cannot use it

    I will load original to my Flickr page and you can download and upload there. I do not know why this picture was added to the Tafawa Balewa page as he was NOT there in the picture. Could you delete that picture from the Tafawa Balewa page and add it to the Sir Kashim Ibrahim page (if that exists)? As stated above, the people in the foreground, L- R in order, are Alhaji Sa'adu Alanamu (Agent General Northern Nigeria), Sir Kashim Ibrahim, OBE (Governor Northern Nigeria) and Chief Arthur Priest during Sir Kashim Ibrahim's visit to the Nigerian High Commission. Date is circa 1962 and not 1955.
