CHANGE IS GOING TO COME is a compendium of engaging essays and ideas for developing countries to rethink their state and get out of economic morass. It is not a political book but a book of interrogation on questions such as: What does change really mean? It contains common-sensical but overlooked solutions to problems such as the proper use of resources, thinking right socially and politically, and being realistic in an unrealistic environment. Put together by one of the Nigeria’s finest rising economic analysts, it is a simple book written in a conversational manner that will help to get people thinking right – if they listen.
This engaging thought provoking lecture triggers crucial questions why is the state in Africa often a colossal millstone rather than a cornerstone of development. Why have African states post-independence retained inherited colonial structure, why are people in many parts of Africa poorer today than at independence, and standard of living and security have depreciated.
This is my sixth book and one in which I’ve been a bit more revealing. It should make very interesting reading because it is not a boring rant about economic and financial issues, but interesting dialogues on matters of mostly Nigeria’s sociopsychology and aspects of history. I personally enjoy such discourses better than the drone on the stiff subject of money and how it is made.
I think this is a more important aspect of the development quest of African people because from a systems point of view we should interrogate our lifeviews, our paradigms and of perspectives. Once the sociopsychological aspects are dealt with, development and progress becomes fairly easy and sustainable. The writings here reflect my mindset and perspective which fuses into my understanding of the larger issues towards ensuring that my people attain a better existence in this present world where no nation waits for another.
