Qty:
House of War is a chronicle of the bitter and bloody struggle for political power in Nigeria’s Second Republic, especially among the followers of the late sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo. This is the story about the schism in the Awo camp and how Awoists turned against one another in the great scramble for political office. The book exposes the politicians’ grand auction of principles and the political intrigues, double dealings, back stabbings, stealing of votes, arson and killings, that characterised the Second Republic, especially during the 1983 elections. It is a relevant book, especially for those who have been following Nigeria’s new attempt to establish a worthwhile democracy since the end of military rule in 1999.
