Synopsis: Usman Shata leads a coalition of military heavyweights to float and mold the African Democratic Party into a leviathan political platform upon the return to civil rule in Nigeria. The coalition soon consolidates a vise grip on all functional institutions in the polity and private sector and grows into a domineering 14-country pan-African platform. It also enjoys the doting allegiance of western governments…
An alliance of left-wing activists led by Malcolm Osisiye, in the stead of his assassinated mentor, Ike Obi-Ike, is determined to put the tyrannical hegemons of out of business…
Lurking in the corner are the antics of a sensual Italian beauty…
Power, greed, lust, activism, social change, political creed, ideology – these combine to brew this cocktail on national liberation from internal colonisation.
