Praise for this Title

“This volume captures the essence and dynamics of democratic governance in Nigeria. The authors have done an excellent job of critically assessing the key themes, events, institutions, and actors that dominates the spectrum of contemporary Nigerian society and politics. The book is a must read for all interested in understanding the Nigerian State.”

-Celestine Oyom Bassey, Professor of International Relations, Department of Political Science, University of Calabar, NIGERIA

“This edited volume comprises some of the well-researched essays ever written on democratic governance and political participation in Nigeria. The essays go beyond the expected narratives of elections, party politics, gender and interest representation, human rights, public policy, political culture and governance to explore some of the peculiar issues in Nigeria’s contemporary democratic experiment such as privatization of national assets, anti-corruption campaign, terrorist insurgency, domestic security and the Bakassi Peninsula foreign policy debacle. The book is a strongly recommended reading for all relevant researchers, students, instructors and policy makers.”

-Prof Kenneth Omeje, University of Bradford, UK ; University of Johannesburg, South Africa.
