Abstract:Describing Nigeria's constitutional template as defective and its politicians as drawn from a class that sees the Constitution as a garb of immunity and an employment bill of privilege, this collective volume presents thirteen contributions by various authors examining Nigerian political conditions. Contributions: Introduction (John A.A. Ayoade, Adeoye A. Akinsanya, Olatunde JB Ojo); 1. Nigeria's 'disalmalgamation': a chronicle of the codes of conduct of its advocates (Richard A. Olaniyan and A.O. Ogunyemi); 2. Federal governability: Abuja and the rest of Nigeria (Victor A. O. Adenila); 3. The national question (Victor Isumonah and Adigun Agbaje); 4. Federal absurdities and the Nigerian State (Emmanuel O. Ojo); 5. Divergent perception and objectives: prospects for Nigeria (Banji Akintoye); 6. The sacred in the service of the secular: the Nigerian case (John A.A. Ayoade); 7. Ethnic discontent and political insurrection (Tunde Odunlami); 8. Resource governance in Nigeria, 1960-2013 (Itse Sagay); 9. Poverty and political unrest: the march to the cliff (Oluyemi Akinwumii); 10. The founding fathers of the 1979 constitution, fundamental objectives and directive principles of state policy, equity and justice (Adeoye A. Akinsanya, Peju Rosenje, Sesan Oshunkoya, and Linda Kwong-Ndung); 11. Nigeria's malignant political pranksterism (J.A.A. Ayoade); 12. Power shift and the future of elections in Nigeria (Wasiu O. Alli and Chris M, A. Kwaja); The first, second, third and fourth republics: reflections on our conjectural crisis (Biodun Jeyifo); Conclusion (John A.A. Ayoade, Adeoye A. Akinsanya, Olatunde JB Ojo).
