Call For Paper

Towards the promotion and sustenance of academic excellence in our University and beyond, a well reviewed book on DEMOCRACY IN NIGERIA has been scheduled for publication by Ambrose Alli University Press.

The book seeks to establish the etymological involvement of citizens in the dispensation of state affairs in Nigeria. It looks at such participation in different political epochs viz the pre –colonial; colonial; post – independence; military; and the First, Second, Third and Fourth Republics in Nigeria.
