One day a banker gets a phone call from the area head asking him to go and open a banking subsidiary in Africa. As he has neither been to Africa nor opened a bank before, everything presents him with a challenge. At the time of the call, the author was a young man of 27. In this autobiography packed with anecdotes, funny stories and plenty of mishaps, which include how a Nigerian TV Series makes it possible to close money-market deals without using a phone, and how to deal with a Juju-curse Dieter Lösken takes you on his reallife experiences of setting up the bank in Nigeria. It was exciting, but at times very dangerous. He was fortunate not to wake up while his house was being robbed and any sense of romantic adventure was completely obliterated in the face of the abject poverty, terrible standards of hygiene and lack of doctors in the country. / What the press said: 'Writing in an entertaining style, Dieter Lösken transports his readers to Nigeria and lets them participate in the setting-up of the bank. There are several surprises in store Not having been to Africa before, he decides to solve problems and get round obstacles unconventionally. The Juju-curse, warriors with tribal marks and the medicine man all have their role to play. The author complements his experiences with supplementary information on the country and its people.' (Reiner Jäckle, Seewoche, Überlingen, Germany), 'Exotic, full of suspense, funny and educational ...' (Dieter Leder, Südkurier, Konstanz, Lake Constance)
