    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.

    Becoming President of Nigeria. A Citizen’s Guide (Hard Cover)

    The 357 pages, twelve (12) chapter book chronicles the evolution of political leadership in Nigeria and outlines the turning points in the nation’s checkered political history. With keen eyes on the ethnic and religious sensitivities responsible for the mutual suspicion of one another by the multiple ethnic nationalities that make up the country, the author shines light on how Nigeria is practicing zero sum politics via rotation of presidential power between north and south agreement which has inadvertently been undermining the unity of the country and is responsible for lack of real socioeconomic progress even as it is fueling ethno-religious disharmony in Nigeria.

    The book traces the origin of the entity known as Nigeria and dwells on what should  bind the multiple ethnic nationalities that formed Nigeria in 1914, such as trade and notes regrettably, that a combination of ethnicity and ‘ religiousity’ have been thwarting the progress and prosperity of the good people of Nigeria. And according to the author , Onyibe , the book is guaranteed to enable readers learn first hand how feasible Nigeria as a nation is , via the nuanced , sometimes vulgar , even coded granular details about political power play in high places in our country with a view to ultimately guide citizens on how to become president of Nigeria.

    The author recalls that Nigeria became a country after Frederick Luggard, a British merchant turned statesman ,determined to reduce administrative inconvenience of leading then northern and southern protectorates of British empire , convinced the authorities in England in 1914 to amalgamate both of them into one country.

    And over 61 years after independence from Britain, the much sought after transition from a country that the British founded, into a nation nurtured by Nigerians for Nigerians , has been a torturous and tumultuous journey of which only a few baby steps have been taken.

    That is as opposed to the giant strides  which the founders of the  country had envisioned that Nigeria should have taken by now , hence they fought vigorously to secure her independence from the British colonizer in 1960.

    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.
