Short Description: ‘‘You see, back there in my room, I was doing some deep thinking. I asked myself ‘Makoji, how best can you serve your people without destroying all you stand for?’ I thought and thought and then the answer came, in a flash, and that is what I am about to share with you, I have decided to turn down the ministerial appointment.’’
It is a few hours to the swearing in of ministerial nominees and everyone thinks Dr. Makoji Ejembi has lost his mind, as they search for an urgent cure for him – Our Son the Minister.
This is the winning play from the maiden edition of Beeta Playwright Competition organised by Beeta Universal Arts Foundation. It is a satire of the Nigerian situation and highlights societal culpability in making bad leaders.
