For freedom to have a meaning, it must come through the sacrifice of the
people. It is on this notion that the book narrates the journey of Nigeria
and its people from the colonial perspective; it highlights contemporary
realities with critical thoughts and gives an in-depth understanding of
power politics. The book is a thorough work on Nigeria’s historical and
political evolution since the inception of its self-rule, with special
appraisal on its political leaders. It provides insight on how Nigeria can
be re-shaped by a new definition of power. The author argues persuasively,
the road that should be taken by the people of Nigeria, in restoring the
meaning of citizenship.

Austria. The drive for social justice is my motivation for engaging in
critical writing, which has now become my treasured hobby.
