Within this book, you will find engaging works that are not only educative, but also creative, inspirational, as well as upbraiding.
As you follow the first two themes of ‘for the love of country’ and ‘sermon from the political pulpit’, the author’s passion for equity and social justice, uplifting the downtrodden, empowering the youths, demanding accountability from the leaders, holding up the led to responsible followership, and boldness to stand unshaken in her convictions remain unambiguous.
Most importantly, Bamidele’s razor sharp intellect with uncommon and uncanny ability to predict events in the course of dissecting socioeconomic, cultural as well as political issues relating to the political space known as Nigeria, stands out. Referred to as ‘Mummy G.O.’ (General Overseer) by her flock of followers on Facebook, those who doubt her talent in political clairvoyance should not fail to digest the predictions contained in ‘politically prophesying’, the third and final theme in this collection of her writings.
