Naira Power By Buchi Emecheta




Naira gives Ramonu power over justice up to a point… But when the power fails, the consequences for him are horrifying – as witnessed by the girl who has loved him secretly for years.

Buchi Emecheta OBE was a Nigerian novelist who has published over 20 books, including Second-Class Citizen (1974), The Bride Price (1976), The Slave Girl (1977), and The Joys of Motherhood (1979).
