    ABBA KYARI – PORTRAIT OF A LOYALIST

    This book is a compilation of the Points of View, POV of friends and foes of Mallam Abba Kyari, the late Chief of Staff to President Buhari, as published in the media in the immediate aftermath of his death.

     

    Abba Kyari elicited glowing tributes and encomium from friends, colleagues and associates as well as those enamoured by his demeanour and dedication to public service. The views of these individuals are collectively captioned ‘‘The Good’’.

     

    There are also the not so bad views of those who felt let down or side-lined by the late CoS in the course of the discharge of his duty as the ears and eyes of President Buhari, but tempered their anger with a tinge of decency and compassion. These views are categorized as ‘‘The Bad’’.

     

    Then there are the views of the very bitter ones amongst us who appear not ready to forgive Abba Kyari even in death and make no bones about their willingness to dance on his grave if they find the opportunity. The views of this class of people are collectively termed ‘‘The Ugly’’.

     

    Ultimately, the book introduces the reader to how government works in Nigeria.

    BEYOND LOSS AND GRIEF

    How do I come to terms with the horrific reality that less than 12 hours after Kikaose walked unaided into the hospital that she would be dead?

     

    Magnus Onyibe and his family experienced the unthinkable in April of 2017 when they lost their daughter, Kikaose Ebiye-Onyibe to an avoidable healthcare management tragedy.

     

    In the poignant, heart-breaking, yet hopeful and life-affirming pages of ‘‘Beyond Loss and Grief’’ which includes two afterwords, one by a Psychologist and another by an international education and admissions consultant, Mr Onyibe shares his family’s journey of grief, pain, acceptance and eventual celebration of life.

     

    This is in the hope that this book can shed light on the path of other families who will experience loss so that they do not grope.

     

    The book also profiles 20 other young people who were snatched from their families by the cold hands of death in the prime of their youth including the children of governors, legislators, businessmen and women, media personalities and celebrities such as Bola Tinubu, Nasir El-Rufai, Lucky Igbinedion, Dapo Abiodun, Stella Odua, Stella Okoli, Gbenga Aruleba, Aisha Falode, Debanj, Anselem Tabansi, Eucharia Anunobi and others.

    ISMAILA ISA FUNTUA: A Bridge Builder

    What you will find in this book are critical facts about governance in Nigeria through the eyes of major players in politics, media and business spanning nearly 40 years period that Mallam Ismaila Isa Funtua, in one way or the other, had a foothold in government and influenced directly and indirectly, the fortunes or misfortune of many Nigerians.

     

    The book comprises of two sections:

     

    The first sections titled “Through The Eyes” contains the personal views and realities of the lte Mallam Ismaila Isa Funtua’s  friends and associates in the media, politics and business spheres.

     

    In this first section , readers will see mallam Funtua from the optics of the twelve elder statesmen including those he served with as minister in the cabinet of Alhaji Shehu Shagari as president in the second republic and associates in the media world , as well as business partners before his final exit from this hemisphere.

     

    The second section with the title “In The Alternative Eyes” contains the different views of other Nigerians using their own personal lenses and realities which are not necessarily as savoury as the image painted by Mallam Funtua’s family, friends and associates.

     

    In the final analysis, one thing is guaranteed, and that is that readers would learn first-hand, the nuanced, coded, sometimes vulgar and even granular details about political power play in high places in Nigeria.

     

    As someone once posited, there is no good man that does not have something bad in him and there is no bad man that does not have a good thing in him.

     

    The degree to which the bad and the good dominate a human being’s character and attitude towards others, often define how he/she is perceived by the various  people that he/she interacts with in the course of his/her life.
