Part Five; Socio – economic and political with Military punctuation.

Preamble to Part Five. (The résumé/synopsis)

This résumé is for part five only. It deals with the political and economic solutions for the country of Nigeria. It portend to be a guide for all readers but more so for the Government, its Agencies, politicians, political science and humanities students; for them to be able to read through it and be able to select the problem areas of interests, as it applies to their circumstances, and to serve also as solutions for the countries in Africa as a whole, considering the magnitude of the problems discussed therein to be solved in the entire continent and in the Caribbean. See the example set by Oprah Winfrey in South Africa, 2007.

Part five is the section of the book wherein my economic and political solutions in the résumé are developed and the extensions featuring there are adopted by way of portraying how the contents or solutions depicted therein influenced the policies during this period (1983 – 002) for the reforms in Nigeria. I anticipate that these solutions or ideas may well help in your own situations in Africa and beyond if the problems are similarly intractable.

Methodology:

This work is a collection of correspondences exchanged between myself, the author, and the Administrators of Federal Government of Nigeria and some of its Agencies between 1983 and 2002.

My reasons for the publication of this private correspondences are;-

  1. For the benefit of present and future Administrations/tors.
  2. For any other Government, particularly in the third World with similar problems.
  3. For the education of the people of Nigeria - the students in particular. For a passionate call for a political education for the public conterminous with or to intersperse the religious and cultural alignments in the country.
  4. For the building up of public Institutions for the science and humanities as in Europe and the U.S. and to encourage team and leadership nurturing and ideological thinking that can benefit whole nations. See Chapters 21 – 23.
  5. For my personal vindication and of course for recognition for my efforts as a result of the National Appeals by all the Heads of State during this period (1983 – 95), for solutions to the problems that we have in our country.
Therefore since my urgent/instant response to the ‘National Appeals’ (1983 – 1995) for these solutions was motivated by awe and have been loyally given in the circumstance of the socio-economic and political changes then, not only in the hope that some benefits (tangible) will be derived by me as a result of the commitment prompted by the National Appeals but more particularly that other Nigerians similarly perturbed may be prompted also to do this same thing as Bishop Olubunmi Okogie of Lagos rightly said in his letter dated (16th March, 1995, page 166 - 170) and Alha. Hamidu Wathanafa in page 453 thus; ‘We hope and pray that every citizen will see the country’s problem as his own, as such all hands will be on deck on the bid of finding solutions to our problems’, as in (4) above. So, in this case this volume will serve as ‘The Wind of change and or a New Dawn’ for Nigerians, and for Africans indeed, folks!
