Book review

Ota-villa is a fictitious novel. It is an allegorical fable. Preferably it may be called a political satire. The setting of Ota-villa is Nigeria and it stretches to about a century; from the amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914 through the Nigeria independence to the present day “democratized Nigeria”. The novel re-acquaints the older Nigerians to Her glorious pasts, disappointments and regrettable circumstances. It also educates the younger Nigerians on Her history which they may not have known enough of it, by painting the Nigeria history in an interesting animal story of an Orwellian style 'Animal Farm'. Satire is one of the more intellectual kinds of writing and most modern satirists have lived quiet and intellectual lives. In this work, the author like so many satirists is not content to be merely amusing. He makes the reader think and pricks the consciences. He points out the way he thought they ought to go and beyond that; the work has a strong message. A good satire is a work you may read in just a day or even few hours, but you may spend the rest of your life thinking about it, comprehending the content over time. Meditating on the events of a century, the author has brought to bear, his considerable wit and wisdom to the problems of past and contemporary Nigeria. Ota-villa is both a savage indictment of the current system and a solemn warning on a perceptible impending catastrophe. The work is divided into three parts; the first part traces the historical development of Nigeria from shortly before the amalgamation through the independence to the civil war. It made a survey of the colonial government and impacts on Nigeria. The second part brings to focus the military dictatorship that lasted for over 30 years. It made a critique of the military era (1966 to 1999). It also casts a glance at the influence of neo-colonialism. While the third part looks at the vagaries of democracy, the participation and place of women in the current democratization process and the irony of continuous participation of soldiers, with military instincts, in the democratization process.
