A Right to be Wrong
This book, with the intriguing title, A Right to be Wrong, by Celestine Omehia, a lawyer/politician, is about the Supreme Court decision in Amaechi v. Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)  18 NWLR (Pt 1065) 105. The decision must go down in history as one of the most amazing decisions ever handed down by a court of law in a democratic polity founded on the rule of law. The decision is amazing because it makes a mockery of the lofty principles and ideals of democracy, constitutionalism and justice which it professes to affirm, uphold and apply.
