The book’s subtitle, “Pursuing The Renaissance Through The Murky Waters of Nigerian Politics”, foregrounds its structural and thematic import as that which is a mix of the national and the personal. The Foreword was written by an expert in Yoruba history and politics, Professor Stephen Adebanji Akintoye, while the author’s Prologue hints that his book is a fine mix of the personal history of a Nigerian and that of his country’s politics. The story of the author’s roots and birth, first of all, highlights the simple, medical explanation for hitherto ravaging, mystical infant mortality. He was the fourth, yet the oldest surviving child of his father. It also highlights his humble beginning as the son of a roadside watch repairer. The author’s educational journey through primary schools in Abeokuta, to Government College Ibadan, and later to Harvard and MIT in the USA, are comprehensively captured in the first three chapters of the book.
