My motherland was blessed, even till date, we still are. Africa was the envy of the rest of the world because of the abundance of resources divinely at its disposal. However, today, we are now a sight of mockery to the Europeans, our colonial rulers because of the mistake, hospitable nature, kind heatheredness of our forefathers.

This book chronicles selected speeches of one of the most outspoken and controversial public ?gures that ever existed in Nigeria. He, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa - fondly referred to as Balarabe Musa - de?ned the parameters of radical, conscientious and progressive politics in Nigeria for over ?ve decades. He defended the cause of the common man and stood at some point as the lonely voice crying in the desert against corruption and corrupt elements in the country. His winning the 1979 gubernatorial election in Kaduna state sent shock waves across the political spectrum of Northern Nigeria and unfortunately, he was impeached for refusing to bow to the antics of the ruling party in the country at the time. The speeches in this book provides the reader with glimpse of the mindset and all that Balarabe Musa stood for, and an understanding of the political happenings in the country during his days in active politics.
As eye witnesses, we have attempted in this book to capture the events relating to the romance between farmers and pastoralists in Nigeria, the offspring of blood that emanated from the activities of the group indexed as the 4th deadliest terrorist organization in the world by Global security watch , the role played by state and non state actors in the crisis as well as salient recommendations towards sustainable peace for a nation bleeding through multiple conflict theatres. This book provides a veritable research window into the understanding of Nigeria's biggest post independence crisis.
Through the enchanting storytelling prowess of Thaagbo, Vothuno presents a grim narration of the history of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade in a deeply traditional setting. The novel is an imaginative reconstruction of the tragic derailment of the African society as engendered by the slave trade. Vothuno turns to Badagri as a laboratory for the experimentation. Vothuno typifies the entrenched socio-economic traditions of the people of Badagri before the advent of the missionaries, who are the heralds of modernity and freedom from the bondage of slave trade in the ancient city. The arrival of the missionaries with the twin objectives of propagating Christianity and ending slave trade in an enclave rooted in traditional practices already precipitates an inevitable collusion path with Vothuno, the protagonist—who doubles as the chief priest and chief market master of the slave trade business, with outcomes that changed Badagri forever.
Before now, Herbert Macaulay’s stupendous contribution to Nigeria’s political development which earned him the well-deserved title of “Father of Nigerian Nationalism” tended to becloud the very many other areas of his contribution towards national growth. This work makes an acceptable departure from existing literature about him. It delves into other areas of Macaulay’s life which were hitherto unknown to many. The author succinctly elucidates the multi-faceted aspects of the life of Macaulay. He draws insightful and relevant attention to the facts that this great Nationalist was a legendary element in other spheres of life which helped to shape and manifests his attitude to political engineering of Nigeria. The author unequivocally shows that Herbert Macaulay was a prominent engineer imbued with ethical dexterity. He also left an invaluable footprint on music, journalism and social life. He was a surveyor, a human rights defender of towering visibility, an estate agent, a humanitarian and an orator of uncommon eloquence. Macaulay’s career undoubtedly provided the impetus which drove his social and political life. This is beyond a biography. It is a philosophical work, lucidly and boldly presented, laced with innuendos which authoritatively challenges societal ethics.
