In this book, the writer mirrors the Idema community, its poor level of development, and state of economic decadence, caused by the negligence of the Government. The writer also attributes its state to the activities of oil companies that exploit the resources of their host communities and leave them bare-handed to fend-off the fierce beast of poverty and underdevelopment.
Using metaphors and outright allusions, the writer highlights the Niger-Delta struggle, and the richness of a state saddled with perversion and deprivation. The writer also traces the historical pedigree of the NYSC scheme, while emphasising its lofty objectives and x-raying the chasm between these ideals and reality.
