Abstract:This collection of papers emanates from the second Abuja International Conference on Language and Literature, organized in 2012. The conference focused on the work of economist and writer Abubakar Gimba and his efforts to bring a change to the ethical, religious, social and cultural lives of the Nigerian people. Gimba consistently believes that the problems of corruption, exploitation, insecurity, poor roads and decaying infrastructure can be resolved with the right moral leadership in a democratic process. Contributions: Reflections on Nigerian writers and writing in the twenty-first century (Abubakar Rasheed); The perils of a culture-less African literature in the age of globalization (Tanure Ojaide); Abubakar Gimba and criticism of life (A.K. Babajo); Abubakar Gimba's epistles: a moral voice of our time (Mnguember Vicky Sylvester); Concluding Mervyn Hiskett's thesis on Sa'adu Zungur's 'Wakar yanci' (Salihu Y. Ingawa); Binary thematic structure in Abubakar Gimba's 'Inner rumblings' (Effiok B. Uwatt); Reawakening national consciousness for a national language (Rachel Zainab Afegbua); Nation building through sacrifice: reflections form Gimba's 'Trail of sacrifice' (Asabe Kabir Usman); Wifehood dichotomy and gender diffusion in the Nigerian millennium era: Gimba's 'Sacred apples' (Nonyelum Chibuzo Mba); Ten plagues in post-colonial Nigerian society: a sociological analysis of Abubakar Gimba's 'A toast in the cemetery' (Orji-Mba, Onwukah Benjamin & John Ameh); 'Wankan tarwada': Abubakar Gimba's rumblings in 'Inner rumblings' (Cecilia Kato & Shima Atimga).
