AFRICA: The Game Changers & Dynamics of Power
‘’One of my findings is that Africa holds great potentials as the next frontier to the global economy. Africa really has no reason to be poor, had there been conscientious efforts, dedication, and commitment to build the continent The negative effects of the seeming reluctance of some Western nations to free Africa completely from their grips through continued subtle manipulation of the political and economic development of Africa, even after granting these countries independence are highlighted -- Author Click Here to view how to place order
Governance: An Insider’s Reflections on the Nigerian Polity
A compilation that challenges common definitions of governance. The author’s patriotism shines in this book. Some of the unsparing assessments mitigate selective escapism to make the treatment of the core issues even-handed. One of the lessons derivable from the author’s effort however, is that Nigerians need to care more about democracy, raise fundamental questions about it, re-assess our performance from time to time and strive to leave a worthy legacy. The book is being published at a time the polity is characterized by serious challenges of development, a damning display of astonishing wealth of few and the misery of many as the system continues to be fettered diminishing patriotism, declining productivity, selfishness and greed. The corrosive forces of primitive patronage, compulsive compromise and complex corruption are being compounded by the gross deficit in internal party democracy to pose serious challenges to the consolidation of democracy and good governance. It is hoped that other intellectuals will be inspired by Femi Adelegan’s feat and tackle these crucial issues with a similar sense of purpose and in the national interest. – Prof. Tunde Adeniran, OFR, Nigeria’s former Minister of Education & former ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany First published 2009; republished 2012.

The Part to Play – Autobiography of a Prominent First Republic Politician
Author Shadrach Adelegan’s nonfiction book: The Part to Play’ brings a lifetime of experiences to topic. An excerpt from At the 1965 Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference Held in London – HOW WE PROTESTED IAN SMITH’S UNILATERAL DECLARATION OF INPEPENDENCE IN RHODESIA (South-Africa) It was Hon. Samuel Lana who first raised the issue of Ian Smith’s as a matter of urgent public importance, if Britain could not see it as such. When we came back from recess, this matter generated some heat on the floor of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Meeting that day. Lana’s argument was that, as a subject of the Queen, Ian Smith needed to be sanctioned for the Unilateral l Declaration of Independence in Rhodesia (now South-Africa) He had caused a problem for the Queen, a big one for that matter. Speaking in line with Lana, but in a roaring voice, I condemned Ian Smith adding that it was not really his fault. It was because he thought his people would support him to trample the Blacks under his feet. But they should realize that in due course, the Blacks would secure might to be able to face the cannon of Ian Smith and remove his yoke off their heads. Our contribution sounded too harsh, to them. To them, mine was suggesting insurrection against the Queen. The hon. Members of the House of Commons present looked with disdain. Anyway, I had made my point known and I was not apologetic. – At the 1965 Commonwealth Parliamentary Association’s Conference held in London.
