A nation without history is a nation doomed. Onigegewura seeks to rescue our nation in a most intellectually refreshing manner The delivery style is racy, pacy, ecstatic and educative at the same time. 'The research is deep, reflective of a painstaking attention to details. Coming at a time when the nation is seeking for direction with competing forces in perpetual struggle for its soul, this series cannot be more timely.
-Hon. Justice Olubumni Oyewole, JCA 

In 26 gripping stories on different subjects that will draw both laughter and tears in equal measure, Onigegewura has used some momentous events to document a brief history of Nigeria with the wit and candour that have become the trademarks of his writing. From Ejigbadero's land-grabbing career that ended tragically to the battle for succession in the Celestial Church of Christ and several other tales written in Onigegewura's inimitable style. 'Echoes Across the Niger' is a very entertaining and educative book, especially for the young generation who may want to learn about contemporary events in our country from which they can draw their own lessons.
- Olusegun Adeniyiauthor of Against the Run of Play 

Onigegewura is a Chinua Achebe of our time in terms of use of language, minus the fact that his articles are mainly historical. You will enjoy the language and the attention paid to detail in this memorable historical document. DVICE: Don't start reading on an important and busy day, for I assure you, the moment you pick it p, you WOO put it down, and if you are in any way like me who enjoys craftsmanship in words, you might be tempted to read it all over again.
-Jimi Dietsauthor of For Sam: A Collection of Contemporary Thoughts
