Why the Book
With decades of waning leadership crisis and lack of development, Nigeria’s social, economic and political reality remains a disappointment. While we may partly blame prolong military dictatorships for some of our development woes; the two decades of stable democratic governance has given us limited hope nonetheless. Our country remains a nation characterized by poverty, insecurity, corruption, economic stagnation and leadership dormancy. Our political leaders continue to fail us, the future of the young remains uncertain as the economic situation worsens. In the midst of plenty, we remain poor. In today's’ world, where technology and innovation disrupt everything, nations are leveraging technology to challenge the status quo and making impossible possible, we are still battling with basic development challenges as simple as providing power, educating our population, ensuring access to quality healthcare. Its clearly pathetic, and the consensus position is that until we do something radically different, the future of Nigeria is a disaster waiting to happen. There is a consensus that we can no longer continue like this and that something needs to happened to fix the pollical leadership in this country immediately. This presents a perfect opportunity for young Nigerians. We must be empowered, encouraged and organized to take this moment and come to the rescue of Nigeria
