Awe is the industrial nerve centre in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State.1 Unlike other industrial settlement, its enjoy peaceful atmosphere. Not much is written on Awe and Afijio Local Government in general. Needless to say, not much attention had been given to the place of migrants and their role in bringing about socio economic development in the area. This could be as a result of researchers concentration on a bigger communities and settlements like Oyo, Ejibo, Iwo, Egba, llorin, Ibadan among others.
This research work seeks to promote knowledge in the various migrant association that exist, how they operate, their relationship with the indigenous people and probable problems they are encountering. This would provide to the people and the academic, the opportunity to understand the migrants activities and their influence in the socio-economic development of Awe. Since the indigenous population themselves are "restrained" from contributing to the development of the town, due to the peoples cultural belief.2
This essay would serve as a reference point for further knowledge. It is hoped that it will stimulate other researches, probing into the history of Awe and the migrants contribution.
