THE Narrative Landscape Press has announced the release of the latest work by Niran Adedokun, titled, The Danfo Driver in All of Us, a collection of his commentary and opinion pieces published in national newspapers and prestigious magazines in the last eight years.
Since 2012, when his first article was published in The PUNCH newspaper, he has continued to write about mainstream social, political, and religious issues with humour, passion and insightful perspective that connects with the public and gets national attention. According to the author: “Even though I practiced as a journalist for over a decade…. I never imagined that I would write commentaries about anything and gain attention for doing it.”
The collection attempts to “deconstruct Nigeria and the people that inhabit it – the proclivities that set us back, the opportunities that go to waste, the potential that we never realise and the future for which we fail to prepare.” Dapo Olorunyomi, Publisher/CEO, Premium Times newspaper, has described this collection as “…keen insight in depicting the Nigerian condition. Only few books, using the genre of commentary journalism in recent times have come this close to this convincing testimony.”
