This is a book on Nigeria. I began this book with who I am and why I think I am qualified to speak on Nigeria – born towards the end of the Biafra war, I suffered. I lost my twin sister, Ogechi and am yet to recover from it. I have also lived most of my life in Nigeria across the six geopolitical zones.
This book detailed my views and those of 100 respondents drawn from across the nation on what the issues (problems/challenges) are, the root causes, the perpetuating factors, the results and the viable solutions to the national problems.
While what you already know as regards these – corruption, tribalism/ethnicity, poor/bad leadership and poor citizen participant topped the list of challenges; national restructuring, constitutional review and citizen engagement were cited as viable solutions.
I also took the liberty to introduce the concept of a United Nations of Nigeria (UNON) – similar to the UAE algorithm. We need to take relevant steps to rebuild Nigeria. The time to start is now. Join the campaign.
