This book covers the modalities and strategies of the "re-founding" of Nigeria, relative to the political, socioeconomic and leadership challenges facing Nigeria and its prospects for rebirth in the twenty-first century. The book explores the idea that the African state can be re-founded, conditional on its ability to learn from its history, and that changes to the state are made before significant political, economic, and social development can take place.
