People, Politics And Politicians Of Nigeria (1940–1979) By Bola Ige

People, Politics and Politicians of Nigeria 1940 – 1979 is Bola Ige’s account of political events and developments from the years just after the 1939 –45 war, through the period of decolonization, to independence, through thirteen years of military rule and on to 1979 when civilian rule was ushered in once more, with Bola Ige himself as one of the main actors.

The opening chapter has interesting anecdotes of the early life of “Kaduna Boy” – Bola Ige – and about the life in cosmopolitan Kaduna.

Written in clear, readable and pungent style that one has come to associate with “Cicero” Ige, this account of politics and politicians, told by one of Nigeria’s most politically sensitive individuals, is an extremely valuable addition to Nigerians. The book covers all the main episodes of Nigerian politics from the days when Herbert Macaulay and Nnamdi Azikiwe were the main figures, to the rise of Obafemi Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, S.L Akintola, Eyo Ita, Adegoke Adelabu, Bode Thomas, Michael Okpara, J.S Tarka, Aminu Kano, et al.

The struggle for independence; the politics of the years 1960 – 65; the crisis that led to military rule and civil war; the Gowon regime; the Murtala Muhammed/ Obasanjo administration; the return to civilian rule – these are among the episodes told in a manner which only Bola Ige can. His knowledge of many of the political actors; his understanding of “Northern Nigeria”; his close relationship with J.S. Tarka; his admiration for, and loyalty to, Chief Awolowo; his own involvement in the Action Group; his genuine commitment to the Nigerian state as a geo-political entity; his service under the Military in the Western State; his personal relations with a large number of Nigerians across many an ethnic lime – all of these enable the author to tell his story with a flow and a mastery of facts, and analysis that gives this book a very special flavour.
