BETWEEN THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF DEMOCRACY IN NIGERIA: An Assessment of Obasanjo's First term in Office by Academics and Practitioners
Amucheazi, Elo & Ibeanu, Okechukwu (Eds.)

Obasanjo's first term in office as a civilian president (1999- 2003) was a litmus test for the future of Nigeria's fledgling democracy. Set as it was in the confluence of high popular expectations and international goodwill on the one hand, and weak institutions and deep-seated social cleavages exacerbated by years of military rule on the other, the new civilian governments at the Federal and State levels were expected to deliver rapidly the dividends of democracy. The expectations included a quick improvement in social service delivery, ending egregious human rights violations of the military era, improving infrastructure, strengthening institutions of governance and creating jobs. But how did the Obasanjo regime fare in meeting the citizens expectations in its first term in office? What were the challenges faced by practitioners in all the branches and levels of government in achieving their electoral promises and public expectations? And how did they respond to those challenges? 432pp, UK. ADONIS & ABBEY.

THE ROLE OF THE PRESS AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY IN DEMOCRATIZATION: The Nigerian StoryTHE ROLE OF THE PRESS AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY IN DEMOCRATIZATION: The Nigerian Story
Agbese, Aje-Ori Anna

In the 1990s, Nigeria, like several countries in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America, underwent transition programs to return the country to democracy. Nigeria's democratization in the 1990s was a civil and international movement to free Nigeria from over 20 years of authoritarian military rule. Agbese examines the role and agenda of the Nigerian press in the democratization process, highlighting the grave challenges the Nigerian press faced - such as jail, arrest, and assassination - in pushing for democratization in Nigeria. 130pp, UK.
