Product Description

The book, which details Senator Nnamani’s time as Senate President and the reforms he brought to the National Assembly such as bringing more openness to legislative work in the 5th Senate, also gives a blow-by-blow account of the attempt to amend the 1999 Constitution to allow for a third term for then President Olusegun Obasanjo. The ill-fated proposal crashed on the floor of the Senate under Nnamani’s watch, to the delight of Nigerians. Standing Strong also addresses the travails of leadership in Nigeria, the importance of executive-legislative balance, the dangers of the corruption of political processes, the passing of the Freedom of Information bill, the ceding of the Bakassi peninsula to Cameroon and other pressing national matters of the time.
