4.0 out of 5 stars Useful if you need to know about Nigeria.
A good review of the reform process coming from an insider. It could have been much better edited thoug, it reads more like a first draft.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New
The book sounds to me like propaganda from someone in the government of the day. I expected fresh ideas that would challenge the status quo, but I didn't see any. Least of all, any leaning towards doing things differently.

The book sounds to me like propaganda from someone in the government of the day. I expected fresh ideas that would challenge the status quo, but I didn't see any. Least of all, any leaning towards doing things differently. Since the birth of Nigeria, it has been established that Nigeria is unreformable, but I am not sure there is much offering in the book that is new or revolutionary!

If one is looking for a book to study the mindset of current technocrats in Nigeria, this is a good book. But for a serious attempt to find fresh and honest ideas for development in Nigeria, look somewhere else!

This review is from: Reforming the Unreformable: Lessons from Nigeria (Hardcover)
Reforming the unreformable is a great piece of work. I have bought six copies already! The title was well chosen and Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is brave to document her previous experiences in the cabinet. This shows that Nigeria requires more than prayers and policies, but a concerted effort by all to wake the sleeping giant from slumber. I am looking forward to reading the next book on what is currently happening under this current administration.
