MY LIFE AND NIGERIAN POLITICS by TONY ANENIH

cover - Tony Anenih - my life and nigerian politics

THE BOOK

This book deals with the story of an individual who overcame the constraints of his very humble beginnings in a peasant environment to master his circumstance and rise beyond it to play a pivotal role in the politics of the nation where he succeeded beyond all sanguine expectations. His resounding successes in business and politics show clearly that this is the story of hard work, courage, rugged determination to succeed, an indomitable will, a resolute disposition, steadfastness in espousing worthy causes and a story of adaptability to changing circumstances; it is the story of working with men in spite of their weaknesses and failures; it is the story of sticking to principles which are invaluable for success; it is the story of selfless service; it is the story of sacrifice. Above all, it is the story of realpolitik. The details of the qualities which propelled Chief Tony Anenih on his journey of life are clearly set out with meticulous care without sacrificing objectivity. Readers will be able to appreciate the conditions under which he laboured to be what he is today.

 

THE AUTHOR

Born at Arue in the suburbs of Uromi, Esan North East Local Government Area of Edo State, Chief Anthony Akakhon Anenih grew up in an environment of limited opportunities. His enlistment in the Nigeria Police Force in 1951 opened for him a career and profession where his diligence and precocity made him outstanding in a rapid progression through the ranks from recruit to Commissioner of Police before his voluntary retirement in 1976.

On leaving the Police Force, he ventured into business establishing Yakon Motors, Yakon Chemists in Benin City, the Safeway Supermarket in Warri and the Electronic shop in Enugu and politics where he has played a pivotal role in the making of Governors and equally helped in the making of Presidents of the Federal Government of Nigeria. He was chairman of National Party of Nigeria (NPN) in Bendel State, member of the National Constitutional Conference, National Campaign Director Yar’Adua Presidential Campaign Organization, and National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP). He was one of the pioneers in the formation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) becoming the Minister for Works and Housing in the Obasanjo first administration. He was chairman of the Board of Trustees, for the second time, of the Peoples Democratic Party.

He received the national honours award of Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic, CFR, and has also received numerous chieftancy titles and honorary doctorate degree awards from several Universities in Nigeria. Chief Tony Anenih remains relevant in Nigerian politics today – a political colossus, an inimitable tactician and strategist, a master planner, a respected elder statesman who is frequently called upon to calm and stabilize tempestuous political storms.

He is married with children.

DELTA BEYOND OIL, VOLUME TWO

delta beyond oil VOLUME 2

THE BOOK

The performance of countries that predicated their economic growth and development on oil and gas is dismal. Literature is replete on what accounts for this. Recent developments in the international energy market, scientific innovations as well as remote and immediate issues bearing on delicate fiscal federalism in Nigeria have impeded and limited the normal flow of revenue from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee. Consequently, states that tie their developmental agenda to the accruals from the sale of crude oil and gas and other derivatives from the Federal Government are between the devil and the deep blue sea. Admittedly, some of the states are beginning to engage in financial re-engineering by mining the extant natural and human resources embedded in their states. The governor Uduaghan–led administration in Delta State has taken the bull by the horns in his determined quest for sustainable developmental paradigm entrenched in Delta Beyond Oil.

This book, Delta Beyond Oil: A Quest for Sustainable Development, Volume 2, is written in response to the governor’s vision of propagating the idea that Delta State is not all about oil. It is the concise reasoning that the revenue from oil and gas could be utilized to create an alternative economy as shown in other countries that adequately utilized their oil proceeds to transform and diversify their economies.

Delta Beyond Oil Volume One

delta beyond oil volume

THE BOOK

Delta Beyond Oil: A Quest for Sustainable Development, Volume 1, is a response to changes in the developmental initiative that is currently being championed and propagated by Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, the incumbent Governor of Delta State. The book is also derived from genuine concern that the Delta Beyond Oil initiative must be institutionalized and entrenched in the minds of Deltans in order for them to have a good understanding of the philosophy and ideas that have propelled the clamour for a re-orientation and paradigm shift in the developmental model of the state which has been oil-led. Apart from propagating the initiative, this volume explains some of the developmental strides of the present administration against the backdrop of the desire for the sustained diversification of the economy of the state. The balance of opinion, therefore, is that the Delta Beyond Oil vision and model is commendable and should be pursued vigorously in the State’s quest for sustainable development.

Oratory is a powerful medium, with the ability to move hearts and minds. Riots and revolutions have been caused by great speakers, and a skilled tongue has led many nations into the horrors of war. Depressed and hopeless individuals have regained their self confidence and have gone beyond the imaginations of those who termed them “useless” to become great achievers in life all because of the power of inspired words by great leaders such as Bishop T.D. Jakes, Rev. AI Sharpton, Marcus Garvey and the likes of them.

 

Armed with speaking skills, and motivating words from the great leaders in this Volume, you too can become a more pronounced version of yourself.
