• Leadership Gone Rogue

    The writer of this book, Femi Emmanuel Owolabi, shows his proficiency as a well-informed Nigerian who chose the pathway of being blunt and pragmatic by giving a birds-eye-view of the Nigerian situation. Spiced with an unbiased approach to the reality and ills of a nation so blessed and endowed with innumerable resources by Mother Nature, but living beneath her best; bedeviled by the ills of politics and the “necessary evil” called religion. It exudes originality, clothed with depth and apt presentation in an uncompromising manner. It outlines obvious realities as they are in present-day Nigeria. It succinctly presents an unbiased approach to events as they are. If these ills, as articulated in this book, are considered and the ‘remedies’ suggested are heeded someday, ‘soonest’ the new dawn of a better and freer Nigeria will overtake us. Nevertheless, in reality, how will the citizens of this nation respond to this clarion call, and those in power reason with a right conscience to see to the realization of the common good of our nation Nigeria? The truth must be told as it is. The facts must not be circumvented or compromised for nothing or something trivial. Or better still, sacrificed on the false altar of “being charitable with words”. One of the aims of this book is to outline the personal views of a man from the depth of the soul with the passion to see things being put right for the good of his motherland. The greatest contribution of this work, I think, is the way it outlines in an emphatic and systematic manner the ills of ‘Religionomists’ and ‘Polithiefians’. It points to how they have killed the consciousness of God in many. Instead of utilizing God’s great gifts to us, we threw them to the wind in ignorance and chose laziness under the false belief of dependence on a myopic and blur knowledge of God. This attitude has been seriously exploited by the ‘wicked and greedy’ few. No doubt, if many will change their ways – and the political/religious leaders listen to their conscience – then the intention of this book which is A Better Nigeria For All would have been achieved. The author’s treatment of the subject is no doubt philosophical and will definitely provoke statements and comments. Nonetheless, when and if the recommendations put forward are taken to heart they will have far-reaching consequences that will propel this blessed nation forward and take its rightful place among the committee of right-thinking nations of the world. I recommend it for all to go through with an open mind and scoop the best it has to offer us all. Rev. Fr. Cyril Dase Basikoro

  • Dead Dogs Don’t Bark

    Dead Dogs Don’t Bark is the second poetry collection from the acclaimed author, Tolu’ A. Akinyemi. With a similar tone and style to Dead Lions Don’t Roar (Tolu’s first poetry collection) this follow up masterpiece is nothing short of pure motivation. The poems cover a range of topics that many in life are aware of, that the Author himself has experienced and that we all, whatever our age, need support in. Beautifully written, the poems speak volumes to all age groups as they feature finding your inner talent, celebrating your individuality and distinct voice. The poetry collection has didactic elements for evaporating the effects of peer pressure and criminality amongst many others. Also covering mental health, relationships, career focus, and general life issues, the poetry is bitter sweet, amusing and thought provoking in turns.

  • Pendulum 2

    When the story of the revolution that ushered in a new political day in Nigeria is eventually told, none of the main dramatic personae would forget the sterling roles played by the ever-vibrant Nigerian media. But among the largely fair and patriotic reportage and analyses Dele Momodu’s column, Pendulum, published every Saturday by ThisDay, is among these outstanding few. Not only has this column over the years helped set many a national socio-political agenda, it has become the virtual weekend tonic for millions of Nigerians for its forthright, often unabashed opinions about varied national and international issues. Mercurial, incisive, passionate and hugely patriotic, Dele’s weekly opus is thoroughly intelligent and ready to tell the truth to anyone no matter whose ox is gored.

    Not every journalist begins his career with an entree in the nature of a big bang. Journalistic careers tend to take long, and windy route of much obscurity and misfortune, rejection and despair, and then, slowly, and accidentally, the career takes an upswing and the journalist is made and born. Exceptions to this rule are rare, and they remain true to that form exceptions. Dele Momodu whose book you are holding and about to read would qualify as one of such exceptions… How Momodu got to this stage in his career is in part the content of this book. How Nigeria became in the 90s a country where the best and brightest head for the border to escape imprisonment, or frustration or poverty: How the best and the brightest, not wanting this option choose the alternatives of fraud, deception by all means, abandonment of principles, cynicism and anger: How Nigeria in the 90s became a playfield of hate, assassination, murder, power-rage, an atomistic society, adrift, lost and depleted: that is the focus of this book.

  • 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.

  • God’fessions: Daily Confession of God’s Word and Promises Over Your Life

    In a world fraught with evil, encroaching darkness, violence, strife, confusion, attacks on families, failing finances, and health, distractions and emotional instability, man’s usual reaction is that of despondency and negative proclamations. In the beginning, when God saw the darkness that covered the face of the earth, He decreed what He wanted to see rather than agree with what He saw. Since we are made in His image, rather than confessing the problem (darkness) we are to confess the solution (the Word) thereby transforming darkness to light. Believing and confessing are an important part of our Christian walk. What becomes manifest in our lives depends on our faith and confession God’fessions is the first of four compilations of inspired confessions of God’s promises. This book will help you cultivate an awareness of your spiritual blessings and the limitless power of God as well as enable you grow stronger in your faith, as you establish the truth of God’s word over you and your household through your declarations.

  • Living A Meaningful Life

What truly is the meaning of life? Truly, what is life without God? ‘Why does our generation still feel so lost inside? Why do so many young people battle suicidal thoughts daily?

  • The Handwriting on the Wall

    It is safe to generalize that every woman longs for that breath-taking, heart-warming, head-swelling and enrapturing love relationship, which leaves one feeling like Cinderella. However, many women are caught up in the tangling web of unhealthy relationships. Instead of prince charming, many women are stuck kissing a toad, hoping it transforms into a prince. All kinds of fear, desperation, inferiority complex and misconceptions about love and relationships are top reasons why such women cling unto a relationship that inflicts harm on them; emotionally, mentally, financially, physically and even spiritually. In this book, Ika Boyee boldly shares a life-altering and perception-changing personal experience, and lessons she learnt the hard way. The true life story enclosed in this book will make you feel giddy, laugh out loud, get angry and even wet your eyes, but eventually it will enrich you with nuggets of wisdom that will propel you to evolve into a woman of worth.

    If you are hurting from a past relationship, struggling in an existing relationship or simply naïve about relationships, then this book is for you. This book does not only offer a subtle and unspoken reorientation about love relationships, but also leaves a sedative impact on broken hearts.

  • 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.
