Front Cover
Author House, Feb 22, 2010 - Fiction - 152 pages
0 Reviews

According the author, this work was inspired by a comment credited to Prof. Wole Soyinka, Nigerian foremost playwright, poet, novelist, and Nobel laureate, describing the present generation of Nigeria as A WASTED GENERATION, and the activism of the Nigerian foremost and indefatigable human rights crusader, Late Chief Gani Fawehinmi.

The novel is an expose of corruption in every segment of African society. It exposes the political, religious, educational, economical and moral decay and decadence in Africa. It  satirizes the leadership mistrust and dissappointment.
