In The Wonderful Life of Senator Boniface, Ayo Sogunro deploys delightful poetry and impish prose to analyze Nigeria, a country that the great Wole Soyinka calls “the open sore of the continent”. Sogunro the social activist, Sogunro the poet and Soguno the essayist, meet to produce a book that is funny, insightful and thought-provoking. It is comforting to know that there are still some in our midst like Sogunro with a big heart, a conscience, and the literary-fire power to force us to ask the question: Why are things the way they are?”
-Ikhide R. Ikheloa (Social and literary critic).
