Fellow Nigerians, It’s All Politics!


In this collection of socio-political essays, Simon Kolawole, respected columnist and founder of TheCable newspaper, identifies politics, or “politicking”, as the major obstacle to Nigeria’s progress. Other problems, he argues, derive from the wrong form of politicking — manifesting in the manipulation of ethnic, religious and regional differences for political gain. To get out of underdevelopment, he contends, Nigerians must enthrone competent and patriotic leadership committed to playing “politics of purpose”.
