On the Road to 50

A Collection of Inside Stories

Gbenga Adefaye

The Media Man @ 60

The philosophy behind the book is to change the narrative that it’s only when a man’s corpse is before us that we shower him with praises. That has to change. A man that is a two-term president of the Nigerian Guild of Editors, the longest served editor of a national newspaper, provost of Nigerian Institute of Journalism, and so many other “firsts’, cannot celebrate his diamond quietly.

Not the Last Word

This first collection, drawn from a close professional group, is the first but certainly won’t be the last. Not for a man who poured himself into whatever his hand found to do. It’s my privilege to introduce the contributors.

Voices from Within

Essays on Nigerian Journalism in honour of Sam Amuka-Pemu

This book is a must for all institutions where mass communication is taught, as well as for those who wish to satisfy the counsel by Alexander Pope that we should drink deep; there is depth in the Voices from Within provided here by experienced professionals who have seen it all.

The trial of Nuhu Ribadu

A riveting story of Nigeria's anti-corruption war.

Although clearly sympathetic to the viewpoint that Ribadu’s removal was improper, the author’s analysis and account of events have not been entirely one-sided except perhaps on the role of the Attorney-General of the Federation; in any case those who disagree with the author can go and
write their own book.

I recommend The Trial of Nuhu Ribadu to everyone who is Interested in the fight against corruption and its associated tendencies and consequences, and that ought to be everyone.

In pursuit of the Public Purpose

Essays in honour of Tunji Bello at 60.

A collation of reminiscences such as this is especially valuable, not just to paint for posterity the portrait of a deserving public servant. It is also to exemplify the various vicissitudes which we typically go through in our life journeys and how our attitude at the different levels come together to
perfect the picture of who we are, for better or for worse. In the case of Tunji Bello, I think, without a doubt, that we have here a well-balanced study that will benefit all readers. I would not be surprised therefore if it gains the status of required reading for intending administrators.
