For The Good Of The Nation: Essays and Perspectives – by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi


This collection of essays and interviews is more than just a book; it is (a) ‘tour de force’ covering many topics and subjects. Essay sentences and paragraphs contain an idea and message to make our country where fairness and justice reign. Whether discussing western or Islamic philosophy, History and Anthropology of the various peoples in Nigeria, or the divisive injection of ethnicity and religion into our politics, Lamido is brutally frank, thoughtful and logical. – Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, Governor, Kaduna State, Nigeria

In this collection of forceful argumentations organized around several demanding and daring essays, the man popularly called SLS presents readers with much to chew. We have come to expect strident, even controversial, declamations from the author on matters of public interest – whether those concerning Nigeria’s political organisation and the related political economy or those regarding the theological tensions that define the country. Yet, in bringing together his public reflections over the years in this book, we have an opportunity to connect and assess, in one whole, the different dispositions in the range of his arguments, as well as the ideological – including the cultural and theological – perspectives that inform SLS’s reflections on, responses to and attempts at the resolution of the important questions of our era. As one of the most cerebral – and privileged! – Nigerians of our time, the author’s thoughts deserve much attention. – Wale Adebanwi, Rhodes Professor of Race Relations, University of Oxford, UK
