About the Book

Conflict anywhere and anytime is usually seen as a mark of a dark era in the life of any society and its people. But conflict is not always an aberration. Instead, it is often a veritable landmark that heralds the dawn of a new era which ushers in hope and a better future. The management of conflict when it occurs, however, requires a great wisdom to make the desired difference. When wisdom is used, and when all wrongs had been corrected through constructive dialogue, conflict becomes a virtue, bringing light at the end of the tunnel for lasting peace and mutual understanding among a people in conflict. Brata was a place hijacked by sectional oligarchy. In order to ensure that their sectional interest was actualized and stoutly protected, they sought for, and actually secured the hands of some gullible areas who connived with them in conspiracy against Brata and the rest of Bratans. Satisfied that adequate support was guaranteed, the oligarchy embarked on sustained injustice and highly orchestrated tyranny against their victims including Brata, they place they professed to be their cherished land. Peace and trust remained in the words-highly elusive. The people of Brata, who suffered injustice decided to take a decision that was long over due. In particular, they were suffering untold hardship. Brata was richly endowed, yet no visible growth existed and its people lived in penury. The spirit of consciousness eventually became very strong, and the desire and agitations to improve their lives and their society became uncontrollable. The battle for liberation ensued. The road to a better future, the intrigues and the end, are available for you to find out in the book. Take this worthy trip. Only one voice, once spirit, persistent condemnation and sustained resistance can win a war against evil. Salute to conflict.
