People Power in Africa: A Week That Changed Nigeria For Ever
On New Year's Day, January 1, 2012, Nigerians woke up to the astonishing reality that the Jonathan Administration had peremptorily increased the prices of gasoline and petroleum products more than 150% in an oil-rich nation that earns $271.2 million per day from crude oil while the average Nigerian lives on less than $1.50 per day. The Nigerian Labor Congress, Nigeria's apex labor union and members of the civil societies called on the Jonathan Administration to rescind the policy. The government was stubbornly rigid and bedlam ensued. From Monday, January 09, 2012 to Sunday, January 15, 2012, Occupy Nigeria came to Africa's most populous nation. The Nigerian nation was shut down for one week and the Jonathan Administration capitulated. The authors were in Nigeria during the one week purgatory and covered the nationwide demonstrations. This is the first and only book that gives a blow-by-blow account of the Occupy Nigeria in the country and around the world, complete with nearly 500 amazing pictures for posterity. A must read and a must have as a collector's item.

His hard work anddiscipline, and a commitment to creating meaningful employment for thousands ofpeople, is also a statement about his real values."--- CongressmanJesse L. Jackson, Jr. Democrat, Illinois 2nd Congressional District, House of Representatives United States Congress, Washington DC, USA

I commend this work to all and sundry." ---- Prof. Adebowale Ibidapo Adefuye, the ambassador and head of the mission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to the United States of America, Nigeria House Washington, DC, USA.
"ALIKO MOHAMMAD DANGOTE is a compelling narrative about an exceptional African entrepreneur. It traces the complicated transformation of an ambitious trader into a corporate titan. This book can be read not only as an exciting narrative about the life of a prodigious investor, but also as an inspirational account of the astonishing process of wealth-creation by the richest black man in the world. Beyond these, the book provides the familial, socio-cultural, economic and political contexts for understanding the force of character and amazing entrepreneurial vision that propelled this gutsy risk-taker - Dangote - to the position of global commercial exceptionality that he has attained." ----Wale Adebanwi (PhD), Associate Professor, Department of African-American and African Studies, University of California-Davis, USA, and author of “A Paradise for Maggots: The Story of a Nigerian Anti-Graft Czar, Nuhu Ribadu
"The power of the tongue is humans’ strongest weapon. Tongue produces the ability to speak and when speech is refined and properly-harnessed, it produces wisdom. Wisdom in turn, teaches one how to be humble and humility is the father of greatness. This book explained magnificently how Mr. Aliko Mohammad Dangote has used this weapon to become the richest black person in the world in thirty years. Truly a remarkable biography of a wise human being who has proved by conduct, hard work and perseverance that we are all able to prosper in any part of the globe, irrespective of skin color and past circumstances” --- Tammy Jane Radovanović, Head, Loita Capital Trade Office. Johannesburg, South Africa
"The life of Aliko Mohammad Dangote, the richest, Black, Nigerian man, is skillfully collated by the authors, demonstrating his economic success was part of an incredible legacy of resilience and accomplishments. Unhindered by racial heritage with an unusually powerful and unique combination of sound business principles and behaviors, Dangote has trumped long held assumptions, cultural archetypes and stereotypes, to become known as a respected business man, power broker and philanthropist." ---Hon Gloria Hyatt, Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), motivational speaker, educator, coach and managing director, Teach Consultancy Limited, Liverpool, UK and author of “Essential Guide to Surviving Redundancy
"Africana readers and political-economic policy wonks of African affairs will love this book! Moshood Fayemiwo and Margie Neal’s “Aliko Mohammad Dangote” is appropriately African-centered – an attempt by an African scholar and his co-author to present Africans as the subject of history. The authors are right, “Africans must learn to celebrate their own”; and what better way to do this than through this thoroughly interesting biographical treatise of the richest black man in the world! This superbly written biography exemplars the historical vibrancy of the Nigerian business class and debunks the notion that corruption is the core tenet that characterizes the country’s socio-economic culture. You must read this “Good News from Africa” monograph; it is fashioned in a style similar to Vali Nasr’s Forces of Fortune (Nasr, 2009), a book that comparatively documents the alternative experience of many Turkish “Capitalist Prophets of Change”. Refreshingly differently, however, for Aliko Mohammad Dangote, reveals for reader-publics the agent-centric contributions of Africans’ global business success in this regard- using as case study, the very rich story of Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote, the world’s richest African." ---Rita Kiki Edozie (PhD), Associate Professor of International Relations, Director of African- American and African Studies, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA and author of “Reconstructing Africa’s Third Wave of Democracy: Comparative African Democratic Politics
"Perhaps more than any other Nigerian, billionaire businessman Aliko Mohammed Dangote represents the possibilities of entrepreneurial excellence and industry by citizens of a country often regrettably discussed in terms of her unfulfilled potentials. In this biography of “the richest black person in the world” Moshood Ademola Fayemiwo and Margie Marie Neal unravel the historical and everyday circumstances that have shaped the extraordinary career of an African businessman and sometimes controversial political player. In turns journalese and scholarly, this revealing book is a remarkable addition to the genre of biography which is often abused on the one hand by Africa’s influential politicians and businessmen anxious to rewrite history in their favor, and on the other by authors eager to cash in on their vanity." --Nduka Otiono, (PhD), Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Africana Studies, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island USA, and award-winning writer/[poet
"Moshood Fayemiwo is an excellent thinker."---Edgar Huang (PhD), Professor of Mass Communication and Information Science, School of Informantics, University of Indiana at Bloomington, Indiana, USA
"Congratulations, this is a timely book on Mr. Aliko Mohammad Dangote, the richest black person in the world and the positive changes that are taking place in Africa… Prof Vijay Mahajan, author of “Africa Rising” and the John P. Harbin Centennial Chair in BusinessStudies at McCombs School of Business, The University of Texas at Austin, Texas, USA and former Dean, Indian Business School, Hyderabad, India.
Statements From Other Endorsers Not Pictured Here
"Considering that the insubstantial book culture in Nigeria and much of Africa is replete with hagiographies and vanity publications, this researched biography on Aliko Dangote by two respected authors is a most welcome replenishing of a famished bookstore. African Economic History should draw required invigoration from a human- centered narrative of how enormous fortune can be built up and consolidated by talented individuals with eyes on the main chance. I look forward to recommending it to my students."---Ayo Olukotun (PhD), Professor of Political Science, Lead City University, Ibadan, Nigeria and author of “ Repressive State and Resurgent Media Under Nigeria's Military Dictatorship, 1988-98.”
"I must admit that I was taken aback by the enormity of the task you set out to accomplish. What a book, I must confess! I was most fascinated at the pains the authors took to trace a part of Nigeria's political and commercial history from northern Nigeria through several interim episodes to our present day's dispensation. The genealogical research that offered such a laborious detail of Dangote's ancestry was also proof of the hard work the project required. This is a book that will go a long way in answering several academic questions that students of Nigeria's history may have in mind. It is a practical guide to opportune geeks and ambitious young men and women who will grasp a clue on when and where to be push full in business endeavors. As presented in the book, Dangote's attitude of avoiding conflict will political leaders wherever possible will surely serve as a useful tip to serious and aspiring businessmen and women. Occasional hints here and there, of speculated flaws on Dangote's path to success crown the professional credentials of the project. For instance, rather than being a purely praise-singing book, efforts were also made to highlight critical positions pointing out occasional biased incentives offered by government that may have driven competitors out of the market in favor of Dangote. This is a professional narrative that easily betrays the journalistic background of one of the authors. Well readable and highly commendable. "---Frisky Larr, radio journalist, communication scientist and author of “Nigeria’s Journalistic Militantism,” Bochum, Republic of Germany.
"Congratulations for a job well done with the first and only biography of Mr. Aliko Dangote. The authors covered the various trajectories of the quintessential Dangote and give the reader a well-written, well-researched and balanced story of how the richest man in Nigeria, Africa and the world achieved this remarkable feat. Considering the time and hard work that went into this scholarly work, there is no doubt it should win the authors accolades and awards. Mr. Dangote is a great Nigerian, and his legendary business accomplishments should be a thing of pride to Nigerians, Africans and indeed all black people of the world. I am proud of the authors and commend them for the painstaking efforts that went into writing this seminal work. Again, congratulations. ---Emeka Linus Emekauwa (PhD), General Manager, and host of “African Series, Saturday 3-6pm program, WSHA 88.9FM Radio, Shaw University Raleigh, North Carolina, USA
