The fight for the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria has been a protracted battle. In the last days of colonialism and the early years of the first republic, Nigerians experienced aspects of true federalism and democracy in the different regions of the country. The seizure of power by the military gave rise to unitarianism while the tragic Nigeria – Biafra war served the ethnic agenda of the military. The second republic could not suffice the parochial schemings of the Nigerian military. After a marathon transition – to – civil rule programme that gulped billions of Naira, General Ibrahim Babangida annulled the June 12, 1993 election won by Chief M.K.O. Abiola. This led to a fierce war for democracy in Nigeria that produced heroes and villains and martyrs. In this incisive book, Joe Igbokwe asserts that even with President Obasanjo’s bold moves, the war is not yet over until issues such as the restructuring of the country and the armed forces are addressed.
