about

A Wake-Up Call! was written by V. I. Umenyiora “because we have political problems in Nigeria and indeed Africa. My Heads of State from 1980 on made a public pronouncement inviting Nigerians home and abroad to submit solutions they consider will help solve some, if not all of the problems. I succeeded in this because they are using parts of the solutions I submitted in my previous books.”

Following are some of the major solutions the author proposed:

In his first publication, Nigeria – survival or disintegration!  (ISBN 978-2335-28-2, 1988) you'll find: - Option A-4 taken verbatim from the pages; he recommended need for finger/ name-reader machines for use to simplify the exercise, which is in use now in Nigeria. He also proposed a need for a “National Orientation programme” for Nigeria to be installed in 1992; civil service reform or strengthening to serve the political parties irrespective of which one is in power in the country; the need for recapitalisation of banks to help business organisations raise adequate funding for their enterprises to cushion the effect of SAP, which not only debased the local currency but truncated all capital investments economically by the citizens!

He also proposed the need to curb corruption, including an asset detection mechanism for Nigeria to help politicians/public servants in declaration of assets as required by the Constitution.

It was pointed out there was a need for a “common-pool” approach in 1988-1989 and 1993, and in particular on the 4th June 2015 correspondence to the president against corruption.

The author points out that banking reform, government corruption, affordable housing, infrastructure repair, and environmental concerns are only some of the problems being faced in Nigeria. This is the Challenge to What You Can Do for Your Country!

Born in Nigeria: V. I. Umenyiora now resides in London, where he is retired and writing books to help his homeland.
