About the Book

The Labour of Our Heroes is an attempt at “memorializing  (the) feats, up-raising the heroic status of (such Nigerians)”

Using the old theory of charismatic political leadership. It engages a Pan Nigerian landscape in which religious and political leaders, academics and intellectuals,  entrepreneurs, philosophers, physicians,  scientists and creative writers, actors and filmmakers, musicians and community leaders,  are placed in the same force-field, as heroes.  Politics is not thereby downgraded or degraded but visualized, in context, as one of the theatres in which leadership may manifest within  a contingent network of outstanding performers.”
