Never Quite An Insider.
A Nigerian memoir.
Twenty years of running multiple businesses in Nigeria qualifies me to write an instructive memoir. Indeed, having blown the whistle on corruption in one multi-national, faced two years of threats and intimidation in the ‘wild east’ of Aba and then sought to change the course of one of Nigeria’s highest profile corporates, I believe I have insights that have value. Throw in some humour and a willingness to tackle controversial subjects and I present you with an unusual account of this misunderstood society and my love affair with it.

Nothing cheers up my mood & makes me proud more than when one of our offspring stands up to be counted. Please help protect Sea Turtles by supporting Sea Turtle Rescue Alliance – https://seaturtlerescuealliance.org/about-us/
