I Am Directed: The Lighter Side of the Civil Service
This is the hilarious account of the experiences of a seasoned civil servant, rendered in fictional form. It is based on actual episodes and experiences of the author during his years in the Nigerian Civil Service, where he was Permanent Secretary in various Ministries, Secretary to the Military Government and Head of the Civil Service in the former Western State of Nigeria. The story portrays the lighter side of the civil service, whose image is one of static dullness, and the drawings add to the fun.
