Pat Utomi reads from WHY NOT? at Rovingheights Bookstore, Fri. March 11

FRIDAY, March 11, Professor of Political Economy and management expert, will read from his book, Why Not? Citizenship, State Capture, Creeping Fascism and Criminal Hijack of Politics in Nigeria, at the Rovingheights Bookstore Landmark Centre, Oniru, Victoria Island.

The event, which kicks off at 5pm, will have Utomi, also a renowned public affairs commentator, author and conscientious player in the Nigeria political field, in conversation with with politician and Executive Director, The Electoral College Nigeria, Kunle Lawal.

A release from the Rovingheights management sets the synopsis of the event, which will also have Utomi signing copies of the book for guests, thus:

In 2018, a study showed that Nigeria had become the most miserable place to be human on earth. In the same year, political primaries showed no effort to find leaders that could tackle the myriad of problems tackling the country, thereby presenting a grave danger that the Nigerian state could degenerate into a criminal enterprise.

The book “Why Not?” responds to the question “Why Bother?” which is posed by those who think that criminal capture of politics in Nigeria is complete, and hands should be folded and observer- binoculars, rented. The book starts by mapping out a new path for fascism in Nigeria and reveals “how a sense of shame met its death in Nigeria”.
