If literature is the mirror of the society, ‘In the Name of our Father’ showcases Nigeria in its ugly nakedness. The novel tells the tragic story of a critically sick nation. A soulless society, drowning in a sea of moral, ethical and cultural decay. A nation of banal, disappointing, disdainful, ruthlessly insensitive, abysmally irresponsible, and self-serving leaders, at different levels and diverse spheres of authorities. The book also lays bare the heartbroken tales of human cruelty, injustice, corruption amorality, deceit and spiritual fraud in the society in general, with biting references to some sections of the christiandom. It as well X-rays the brutality of military tyranny of the nation’s recent past. And a debased society and people in dire need of redemption.
