Lona of Leicester
by Eberechi Chiluwa
Oji Lona is a typical African politician. But Barnabas sees a New Nigeria. When the revolutionists come, it becomes obvious that the wind of change has come. Change begins from the supernatural, when things start to turn around and retributions begin to take place for Lona. Then he realizes that the world is too big to be handled by one man. Lona of Leicester represents the old order, while Mike Mada holds a promise that perhaps the beautiful ones are born at last.About the Author
