Published by Xlibris
In a simple language, Uche Odika Junior has successfully tackled a long-standing contemporary problem of Nigeria’s political life, linking democracy, good governance, patriotism, citizenship, political party, and electoral engineering in a single comprehensive framework. This work is an ambitious and passionate project; every political actor in Nigeria will appreciate the clarity and thoroughness of the entire argument.

University of Manchester

Odika’s new book is an insight into how to fill the generation gap that past leadership has created for Nigeria. The result of the gap has been a failed insensitive leadership that is retrogressing Nigerian development. This work, when followed by the new generation leaders, will take Nigeria to the realm of a developed nation.

As a qualified proofreader I have read a wide variety of subjects for authors including sport, politics, religion, fashion, science and education.
What stands out in this author’s work is the passion he has for Nigeria. The book examines the current situation of democracy in Nigeria and the problems associated with the various ethnic and religious groups within the country. He develops convincing arguments that the way forward is for the leaders to embrace good governance with the spirit of patriotism to make democracy work. The book is well researched with balanced arguments and shows a fervent desire to unite the Nigerian people with true patriotism for their country.
