Kyrian Chukwuemeka Echekwu’s debut book, “Nigerian Politics and Corruption: The Challenges Before the Nigerian Church as a Socio-moral Actor” (published by iUniverse), which is a critical review of Nigerian politics focuses mainly on politics and the vices found in politics, that is corruption, bad leadership, injustice, etc.

As an analytical look at Nigerian politics, emphasis is placed on corruption in particular, because Echekwu argues that if left unchecked, it could be detrimental to the survival of the Nigerian nation. Also, the book challenges the Nigerian Church to rise up to be the conscience of the nation, “before our people are all consumed by the sin/culture of corruption.”

“What makes this book different is that it does not only expose the problems with Nigerian politics, it also offers solutions and way out of the quagmire.”

An excerpt from “Nigerian Politics and Corruption:”
The political situation in Nigeria is such that provokes challenges, which in turn are in dire need of moral solutions. First and foremost, the socio-political contours of Nigeria have been badly ravaged and bruised by corruption.
