Shehu Shagari was the first democratically elected Executive President of the Federa Republic of Nigeria. His autobiography shared his experience from early childhood through his period as president in 1979-1983, and beyond. Born the son of a village chief, he became a school teacher, political activist and committed democrat and nationalist. His story is told within the context of the transition from colonial rule to independence and the struggle to build a stable country with democratic institutions and values. Detained by Babangida, all Shagari's personal documents were destroyed, and this reconstruction has been aided by academics, and former ministers and advisers.
