9781439245286: Leadership without a Moral Purpose: A Critical Analysis of Nigerian Politics and Administration (with emphasis on the Obasanjo Administration, 2003-2007)

This book tackles such contemporary and critical issues as political parties without ideology and fraudulent elections, political assassination and godfatherism, pandemic corruption and the ailing economy, poverty and insecurity, to mention but a few. Tracing the political history of contemporary Nigeria in the context of these critical issues the author laments that ‘leadership without a moral purpose’ has destroyed the nation’s economy and subjected the people to immeasurable economic hardship and misery. This book reframes the wrong perceptions the political leaders (particularly Obasanjo) have had about leadership and concludes that Nigeria needs a transformative leader, one who has an uncommon vision for change, a national leader who understands the dynamics of Nigerian politics and combines vision with pragmatism, a leader who has the ability to arouse the people’s moral purpose and a genuine commitment to tackle the myriad problems facing the nation.
