For freedom to have a meaning, it must come through the sacrifice of the people. It is on this notion that the book narrates the journey of Nigeria and its people from the colonial perspective; it highlights contemporary realities with critical thoughts and gives an in-depth understanding of power politics. The book is a thorough work on Nigeria's historical and political evolution since the inception of its self-rule, with special appraisal on its political leaders. It provides insight on how Nigeria can be re-shaped by a new definition of power. The author argues persuasively, the road that should be taken by the people of Nigeria, in restoring the meaning of citizenship.
