Against the Run of Play takes an intense look at Nigerian politics at a time when an entrenched political party was defeated in a presidential election after 16 unbroken years in power. This book offers the reader a narrative explanation and an unusual insight into the major human and institutional factors that led up to the defeat of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. Equally important is the author’s detailed recall of the major political developments that made the outcome inevitable while shaping the very expectations that brought President Buhari to power. Adeniyi enhances the credibility of his narrative through an extensive set of interviews with living key players in the drama he relates. The hindsight of these key players throws the events into bolder relief and illuminates the road ahead.
