This story is about an African American businessman who embarked on what he thought would be a promising business trip to Nigeria in 1978. Although that first business trip was unsuccessful, he would eventually make four more trips, with the hope that the next trip would bring him that elusive financial success. I am that African American businessman, and in the process of making these trips, I lived in the country for more than fourteen years. My experiences included living under military rule, a strained union, corruption, and other social problems. Despite these difficulties, I had the opportunity of sharing the warm and friendly relationships with members of the three major ethnic groups (Hausa, Ibo, and Yoruba) and some of the over 250 minorities. After witnessing Nigeria's problems for more than fourteen years, it left me with a strong urge to write about their situation in a constructive way. My journey touched on various levels of the Nigerian society, and I would like to share these experiences with you in ""It's Time" for A Country Called Nigeria."

This story of migration, identities and lives undermined by cynical and xenophobic politics pushed to its logical and terrible conclusion pertains to the Ghanaian orders of 'alien compliance' issued in 1970-1971, which was designed to force all non-ethnic Ghanaians, so called illegal immigrants, to return to their - so stipulated - 'home'. the novel thus touches on concerns of deeper relevance to the politics of race and migration in the twenty first century. Unexpected Joy at Dawn received a commendation in the Best First Book Prize, Africa Region, of the Commonweath Writers Prize.

It is a new dawn for the C-in-C, whose ascension to power is the result of the assassination of the reformist military head of state, General Mutallah Mohammed, who once promised to transfer power to a democratic government and failed. As a handful of military leaders meet in a private guest house, it soon becomes evident there are cracks in the military foundation and that a palace coup is boiling just beneath the surface. The leaders know they must choose who will be the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But the question remains-who? As soon as General Obasanjo becomes the new president, the nation is plunged into chaos. As a revolution brings masses to the streets who destroy and paralyze all government institutions, Obas realizes he must terminate the ruthlessness of the mafia by appointing the no-nonsense, second-in-command military ruler, Brigadier 'Taju Agbon, to power. But all of Obas's efforts are in vain as more intolerants emerge, the upper class is attacked, and corrupt politicians are robbed of their wealth and properties. In this action-packed tale full of surprising twists and turns, the reign of the last dictator precariously hangs in the balance as he attempts to rule over a nation in jeopardy.

They all come from all walks of life seeking solutions to their problems . . . Seeking answers from the motivational speaker . . . SST, really I feel Im not worthy to be here, she spoke softly again, displaying a reluctance to speak out. I immediately got interested! From experience, such people have interesting stories that will make my day. My sister, dont worry, you have come where your problems will be attended to. I was cajoling her to speak out! And please, I didnt get your name, or you dont feel like telling me? I said. Its not like that, SST! Its just that I dont think I should say what I want to say. She was shying away. I was right. She didnt want her name to be mentioned, theres a story all right! She came back reluctantly. OK. SST, my name is Joan, she said. Joan like hell! No problem, I can use that name. Names are like ages. They really dont count on my show because you hardly get the true dose, all the same I just needed it for the reference. OK, Joan, whats the issue? Let me see your steps, the floor is all yours now. I decided to spur her. I havent got all day even if she was my only caller. Joan, lets hear you before our shot time is up, and we might just miss you for life. I was pushing her. That seemed to wake her, and from then, she started coming out like a canary. When something is bottled up for so long inside someone and it wants to spurt out, a small nod will collapse the whole balloon. SST, you see, I never knew my life will drain to this level. I was not brought up to be like this. I had a good family upbringing, nice parents that wanted the best for me. It was not meant to be like this for me. I bet I was left astray by the company I made in school. Thats it, she is talking now! You cant put it down once you start reading . . .

Farewell to N'Djamena is a literally classic that carries out a narrative on the United Nation Mission in the Central Africa Republic and Chad (MINURCAT). The book examines the withdrawal of the European Force which gave way to MINURCAT Force activities in the region. Unfortunately one year later, the force was considered not to have attained its Humanitarian Mandate especially as the Presidential election was by the corner. Chad had made peace with the then old Sudan whose President had the ICJ hammer dangling on his neck for war crimes. All effort to get President Idriss Derby of Chad to extend MINURCAT Mandate proved abortive. Subsequently the mission began to wind up gradually. The author is of the view that the numerous political challenges and conflicts in African is caused by the greed of its leaders who have turned the institutions of governance to that of personal gains. Finally, the book will assist the United Nation Secretary General to know the challenges that faced MINURCAT which led to the resignation of the Special Representative of the Secretary General. It is a must read piece.

Never in the history of Nigerian football had a footballer been a newspaper columnist, I was told. So I would be the first. In fact when the suggestion was made for me to write, I was at the peak of my career in football. I had been a part of the team that won the Africa Cup Winners Cup in '76; been representing the national team fully for two years; played in the African Cup of Nations; won the All-Africa Games silver medal; gone to the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. I had also been rated as the third best player in Africa, the first time any Nigerian footballer would have been nominated in Africa's official best player poll in 1978 and was to be named second best two years later in 1980. I was convinced that football followers would love to read about the life and personal experiences of a footballer.
