Synopsis: When a small African island nation receives its independence from Britain in the middle of the first decade of the twenty-first century, Otileti Gbankogboju becomes head of the caretaker government. A teacher and the proprietor of the only indigenous school, the well-educated Oti hopes that, by as acting prime minister, he can stabilize his developmentally backward country. The residents of this little nation have pinned their future hopes on Oti. To understand what qualities mold a great African leader, Oti and his wife, Phoebe, travel to Nigeria to learn from the president of the country. Oti thinks he’s going to hear about selfless service because that’s what he believes leading a country is all about. But he is shocked when the Nigerian president “educates” him on what really makes a “great” African leader. Built on satire and humor, The African Prince provides a fictionalized look into the power and corruption of Nigeria’s leaders.

About the Author: Ayoade Oluwasanmi was born and raised in Lagos and has lived all his life in Nigeria. He is deeply passionate about seeing Africa in particular and Nigeria in particular rises up and fulfills its developmental potential. Like a lot of its citizens, he is however frustrated by what he sees as the lack of vision of Nigeria's leaders which ensures that its growth remains stunted. Ayoade is a lawyer and an arbitrator. Ayoade presently lives in Lagos. The African prince is his first novel.
