This book is an in-depth exposition of the political profile of a man of timber and calibre, an icon, a kingmaker, and godfather to countless number of elected representatives of people and political appointees across the length and breadth of Nigeria.

For over five decades, Baba Adedibu, as popularly called by his loyalists across the country, dedicated himself towards a kind of power play different from his notable mentors like the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Chief S.L.A. Akintola. He was adored by many, yet, hated by several noteworthy personalities who could not deny his rare political wisdom. Adedibu continued to reign regionally and nationally, wielding the uncontested power to strategically select and mentor several past and present political stakeholders for ministerial and other relevant appointments. Saka’s years of research and unbiased writings on the Baba constitute a great revelation.

Gbolarumi’s insider account is an interesting angle to it, as he x-rays the untold stories of Adedibu’s travails in the murky waters of Nigerian Politics, right from the First Republic till he breathed his last in 2008. It is a must read for every student of politics and history, and a rare opportunity to understand politics from late

Adedibu’s periscope.

He is also known as the ”IROKO IN MODERN NATIONAL POLITICS”. Like Benjamin Franklin, an American statesman, who was everything to America, except being a president, Lamidi Adedibu was everything to Nigerian politics except holding high political offices.

In this book, Adedibu’s Molete politics is brought to the fore in this quintessential historical book. He has also attained the position of immortality, his monumental contributions towards the growth and development of Nigerian democracy would forever be remembered.

He was believed to be one of Nigeria’s most colourful, controversial and powerful politicians. He became an authority in the art of political mobilization, de-mobilisation and necessary coercion; this made him to bestride the Nigerian political landscape like a colossus.

Adedibu has, through his genuine love for the people, humility and generosity won the confidence and patronage of so many people and grassroots political decision-makers over the years.
