Corrupt, mismanaged, and seemingly hopeless: that was the generally held view of Nigeria in the early 2000s. Then Nigeria implemented a sweeping set of economic and political reforms, repositioning Nigeria’s economy in ways that helped create a more diversified springboard for steadier long-term growth. This book tells the story of this reform process, driven by a team of dedicated and politically committed reformers led by the author.
