Igbira Tribal Union was a political organization formed by educated servicemen from Igbira Native Administration of Northern Nigeria, headed by George Ohikere. The union was one of the non Hausa-Fulani organizations that was affiliated with the dominant Northern People's Congress during the elections of the 1950s. However, there were strains in the political alliance with NPC in 1958-1959, with both parties presenting candidates for the 1959 parliamentary election.
