Entries on Poverty
This book, Moved by Passion for My Country is an important literature on problems we have created ourselves as a nation. It provides an insight into background of what we are feeling and seeing today. The author is not satisfied with the effort put in place to ameliorate the problem plaguing the nation. He has identified poverty as the greatest problem observed to be witnessed in recent times. He opines that only acquisition of adequate knowledge can salvage this problem. That is the type of knowledge that can make us self-reliant. The author rightly posits that Nigeria is at the crossroad, since leaders and the led have failed to initiate programmes to remove corrupt tendencies and practices with their attendant challenges and failures. For Nigeria to develop the right attitude to guarantee our nation development agenda, it demands entirely a new approach in our insight, thinking, perspective, reasoning and concern for the plight of the citizenry. In search for a panacea, this work leans heavily on the work of Professor Dora Akunyili, the initiator of the Rebranding Nigeria project, whose role model is that of re-orientation and development of policies predicated on seriousness and dedication in the implementation of policies and discussions that can lead to honest and committed leadership by example such as sincerity, transparency, accountability etc. for a better tomorrow. Thus, the author identifies MDGs, though foreign, as the most credible programme “fashioned to take care of the common man’s welfare”. This identification, together with the enriching factors that define the underdevelopment in the underdeveloped African countries at the beginning of the book, makes the book not only a good reference text, but also a practical manual. I commend the author, Mr Hemern Chabo, for providing this useful literature on an all-important subject of poverty as the greatest problem facing the nation. I am happy to recommend the book to students and practitioners alike.
