This week in Prospect online, Jonathan Power looks at the state of Nigeria. It’s more than a year since Olusegun Obasanjo stepped down as president. His successor, Umaru Yar’Adua, has been nicknamed “Mr Go Slow” by the press for his cautious style of decision-making. Might Obasanjo, seeing the country’s progress stall, be tempted to stand for president again?
Also this week, Lesley Chamberlain revels in her roof garden. Provided that you have a head for heights, roof terraces are part of the poetry of the city, offering panoramic views and the chance to rise above the hectic urban world.
