The book is a book of many facets which explores the history of Nigeria while discussing Constitutional developments. As a historical book, it ignites the memories of our Constitutional history by discussing the legal regime and administration of pre-colonial Nigeria; the attainment of independence; post independence administration, military interventions, development of the regions; state creation; and Constitutional amendments. In displaying the structure of government, the book touches on federalism, presidentialism and unitary governance in Nigeria. It also examines issues such as minority rights in Nigeria, military administration and the civil war which have threatened the peaceful co existence of the country at one time or the other. The impact of Constitutional development on the sharing of revenue resources, electoral bodies and financial institutions is also discussed. The future of Nigeria with the current 1999 Constitution is essentially detailed with academic opinions on ways in which the Constitution can adequately be what it is meant to be, so also, the importance of political will on the part of the people.
