Too Good To Die

by Ayisha Osori & Chidi Odinkalu


Synopsis

“Too Good to Die will make a remarkable contribution to the critical excavation of Nigerian statehood and statecraft. The writing is captivating and intoxicating. The pages turn easily and the reader wants more. It will turn minds, if not heads!”
– Prof Makau wa Mutua,
Dean, State University of New York Buffalo Law School, New York

“In Too Good to Die, Osori and Odinkalu provide us with an unsparing but unbiased look at Olusegun Obasanjo, his Third Term project and Nigerian presidential leadership writ large. Leveraging painstaking research and fresh interviews, Too Good to Die challenges conventional analysis of one of Nigeria’s most emblematic national leaders. Part political history, part biography and part critique of Nigeria’s pseudo-messianic political class, this book is a must-read for everyone seeking a deeper understanding of Obasanjo, his complicated legacy and contemporary Nigerian political leadership.”
– Matthew T. Page,
author of Nigeria: What Everyone Needs to Know

“Santayana, the European philosopher, warned that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Chidi Odinkalu and Ayisha Osori have drawn on their expertise as lawyers, researchers, scholars and storytellers to remind Nigerians of a vital fragment of our recent political history: the third term agenda. But Too Good To Die is not just a compilation of hard facts on political ambition, it is a didactic tale of a nation’s tragic trajectory, spiralling in systemic dysfunction, steered by the self-aggrandisement of soldiers and their sycophants. Too Good To Die is a well-timed notification that Nigeria does not need strongmen rulers but only needs a strong citizenry.”
– Ayo Sogunro,
author of Everything in Nigeria is Going to Kill You
