About the Book
Voice for the Voiceless is Dr. Olusegun Bamidele Abejide’s memoir to Nigerians that there is optimism for their democracy to blossom. Though crestfallen by the daily happenings in Nigeria, he is persuaded to think that the personalities he features in this book are central in strengthening the country‘s democracy. However, it is so unfortunate that the Nigerian citizenry rarely acknowledges them as campaigners of democracy. Determined to make an objective argument, he pointed out that Nigeria faces a myriad of challenges, like national security which is being threatened by terrorism and ethnic restiveness. Nigeria with a status of “Africa’s largest economy and most populous nation” is also mentioned to be staring at an economic downturn while its leadership seems clueless on how to revive it to spur economic development and alleviate extreme poverty.
