This biography is a rich documentation of the life and times of the indefatigable octogenarian, Chief Michael
Adekunle Ajasin. Starting out with his humble beginnings, the book surveys his early life and education, his teaching career, his involvement in the turbulent politics of Nigeria and his fairness, honesty and dogged steadfastness in dealing with men and issues. His record of service as the first executive civilian governor of Ondo State is a clear testimony of a man who stood, and still stands for probity, accountability and selflessness. In these strange days of warped values, moral decadence and self-aggrandisement, Chief Ajasin’s biography should inspire all lovers of Nigeria to committed selfless service in our collective effort to build a just, egalitarian and self-reliant nation.
