Religion Politics Power in Northern Nigeria is an analytic narrative of a subject that is at one’s breath volatile but alluring, and at another, demanding but rewarding. it is a fantastic exposition of how the northern oligarchy acquired and has held on to power, using religion as its main weapon.

Very insightful and wide-ranging in its analysis, this extraordinary book associates its data with various themes. scholarly yet highly readable, substantive yet highly readable, substantive yet never prolix, it achieves a sophisticated analysis of the role of religion in Nigeria. The masterly account of the northern factors is unlikely to be superseded.

As a participant observed, the author succeeds in turning up rich evidence to support his thesis. He deserves our appreciation for a significant contribution, for demolishing historical orthodoxies with a barrage of facts, and for providing a work that may be read for both knowledge and pleasure.
