  • Remaking Nigeria: Sixty Years, Sixty Voices

    On October 1, 2020, Nigeria celebrated its 60th year of political independence. After sixty years of independence, most Nigerians, particularly the youth, hold the view that the country has failed to work for them in a way that is satisfactory and enduring.


    This book seeks to give voice to young Nigerians, the critical change agents, to help the country understand and sharpen its focus on those issues that hold the key to its collective survival. Clearly, the new decade will be a defining moment for Nigeria.


    Sixty years after independence, fifty years after a civil war, and at the beginning of a new decade, it is important that a new generation of citizens is challenged to reposition the country. From interaction with young people and discussions on social media, there appears to be a knowledge and information gap among young Nigerians about the history and socio-political evolution of the country. Beyond the lack of understanding of history, there is also a dearth of ideas on what needs to be done and how to get Nigeria out of its current situation.

  • Fighting Lions: The Untold Story of Dele Momodu’s Presidential Campaign

    FIGHTING LIONS is a good read, a comprehensive documentation of the Dele Momodu intervention in our current political journey. The author has constructed a fantastic narrative about a significant episode in our country’s democratic journey even if from a personal viewpoint. The material is quite informative, educative and revelatory, particularly those encounters with certain media workers, potential supporters, and leadership of Labour Party. It will anger some people who are mentioned or whose identities are appropriated in the narratives but then that is expected in a script of this nature. It is angry in part, but again, that comes with the nature of the material- the author is a participant in the narrative he has constructed. But overall, this is a very significant contribution to the rare body of literature on our nascent democratic experiment. – Jahman Anikulapo-Oladejo

    The author told a gripping story that holds the reader’s attention to the very end. – Molara Wood

    From Nigeria’s youngest presidential campaign manager ever, FIGHTING LIONS is the epic tale of an audacious and unconventional Presidental campaign. A must read! – Raymond Dokpesi Jnr.

  • Faith and Governance: Politics and Spirituality in Nation-Building

    Faith and Governance: Politics and Spirituality in Nation-Building is a collection of published articles on the twin subject of faith and governance. The book is divided into three parts. The first part under the heading, Cultivating Spiritual Intelligence contains articles on some dangerous doctrinal positions in the Church and the need for spiritual awareness in this season. The second part, under the title, Christianity and Nation-Building is made up articles that speak to Christianity in Nigeria and the role the Church is meant to play in nation-building. The third part, Governance et’al, contains thoughts on a number of governance issues in Nigeria and across the globe such as corruption, global migration, brexit etc.

    Part One: Cultivating Spiritual Intelligence This part comprises of articles that draw attention to the season we are in and the need for Christians to be spiritually aware and intelligent in order not to be deceived or lag behind God’s agenda. It also contains articles that attempt to address certain dangerous doctrinal positions in the Nigerian Church that could cause the average believer to be deceived, among other articles meant to encourage and inspire Christians.

    Part Two: Christianity and Nation-Building The articles in this part focus mostly on the social responsibility of the Church in Nigeria. It contains three-part articles on the role of the church in nation-building. These articles particularly focus on how the church is poised to contributing immensely to national development. Unfortunately, the church is not doing as much, which is largely responsible for the current state of our country. There are other articles on Pentecostalism in Nigeria, our brand of Christianity, which I referred to as Third World Christianity, as well as others meant to correct wrong application of Scriptures.

    Part Three: Governance Et’al This part of the book contains articles that express the author’s thoughts on a number of governance issues in Nigeria and a few across the world. The subjects addressed include corruption in Nigeria’s governance system, illegal migration and its attendant challenges in different parts of the world and governance under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari among others.


    In a country where democracy has become a tool for the privileged few, who constitute the political class, to degrade the vast majority of the population, _CLASS ETHNICITY & DEMOCRACY IN NIGERIA _captures the initial source of the Nigerian class division, sufferings and poverty, having undertaken a cursory dissection of the First Republic and why it failed.

  • Lives of Great Men: Living and Loving as an African Gay Man

    From Victoria Island, Lagos to Brooklyn, U.S.A. to Accra, Ghana to Paris, France; from across the Diaspora to the heart of the African continent, in this memoir Nigerian journalist Chike Frankie Edozien offers a highly personal series of contemporary snapshots of same gender loving Africans, unsung Great Men living their lives, triumphing and finding joy in the face of great adversity. On his travels and sojourns Edozien explores the worsening legal climate for gay men and women on the continent; the impact homophobic evangelical American pastors are having in many countries, and its toxic intersection with political populism; and experiences the pressures placed on those living under harshly oppressive laws that are themselves the legacy of colonial rule – pressures that sometimes lead to seeking asylum in the West. Yet he remains hopeful, and this memoir, which is pacy, romantic and funny by turns, is also a love-letter to Africa, above all to Nigeria and the megalopolis that is Lagos.
