Governance: An Insider’s Reflections on the Nigerian Polity
A Book That Challenges Common Definitions of Governance
Author Femi Adelegan
Brings a lifetime of experience in Nigeria’s government to topic
ABUJA, Nigeria – Femi Adelegan’s nonfiction book “Governance: An Insider’s Reflections highlights his belief that governments and their major actors – public officers – are in office to carry out the wishes of the greater majority of the populace.
“Governance is a sort of sacrosanct social contract between the government and the governed,” Adelegan writes.“There are obligations to be fulfilled by both parties. Not many people know that governance is a very complex process, which quite naturally tasks the ingenuity of leaders.”
An excerpt from “Governance: An Insider’s Reflections on the Nigerian Polity”:
One of the lessons derivable from the author’s effort however, is that the world needs to care more about democracy, raise fundamental questions about it, re-assess performances 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, the misery of many as the polity continues to be fettered by the diminishing patriotism, declining productivity, selfishness and greed. The corrosive forces of primitive patronage, compulsive compromise and complex corruption, especially in the developing world are being compounded by the gross deficit in internal party democracy to pose seriouschallenges to the consolidation of democracy and good governance. – Tunde Adeniran, Nigeria’s former Minister of Education & Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany.
Adelegan’s conclusions are rooted in theories and concepts about governance. He offers procedures of seeking solutions to problems, and harnessing the human and material resources for the purpose of development. – Yemi Farounbi – Media chieftain & Nigeria’s former Ambassador to Philippines.
This book on Governance will help in demystifying governance and the occupants of political offices” – Liyel Imoke – former governor, Cross River State, Nigeria
