Azhari tried reforming his administration into a coalition government “of all talents,” but much too late. In July 1956 he lost a vote of confidence and was forced to resign. Azhari nonetheless continued as head of the opposition in a new regime headed by Abdullah Khalil. Continued infighting between various factions led to the growth of instability and violence, so in November 1958 General Ibrahim Abboud overthrew the elected government and suspended all political 26 AZIKIWE, NNAMDI activity. Azhari was briefly jailed and allowed to retire on a pension, but when democracy was restored in 1964 he returned to the political arena.

Schuler, Friedrich. Mexico between Hitler and Roosevelt: Mexican Foreign Relations in the Age of Lázaro Cárdenas, 1934–1940. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1998. Ayub Khan, Mohammad (1907–1974) president of Pakistan Mohammad Ayub Khan was born in the Hazara district of British India (modern northwest Pakistan) on May 14, 1907. Ethnically, his family was of Pathan Muslim descent and his father served as a cavalry sergeant in the British-controlled Indian army. Ayub was educated locally before attending the Muslim College at Aligarh in 1922, but eventually he was one of the few non-Europeans chosen to attend the prestigious British Military Academy at Sandhurst.

His greatest accomplishments over the next five years included signing the Locarno Agreement, in which Great Britain and Italy ensured existing FrancoGerman border arrangements. However, when he brought Britain’s economy back to the gold standard at what was perceived as too high a rate, working-class wages spiraled downward. This in turn triggered the general strike of 1926, which threatened to bring the country to a standstill. Baldwin, however, remained firm in his denunciation of unions, rallied public support, and the strike collapsed in a matter of days.
