About the Author

Peter Enahoro

Peter Enahoro, under the popular pen-name, Peter Pan,is perhaps Africa's best known international journalist. He is a widely quoted political commentator and a distinguished publisher. His works have covered most of Africa's major events of the last four decades. Not only has he travelled extensively in Africa; his career has also taken him all over the world. Born into a famous political family, Peter Enahoro became the youngest national newspaper editor in his twenties, during the heady days of the First Republic. His brilliant and courageous columns won him the admiration even of those at the receiving end of his witty satires. Peter Enahoro went into self-exile in Europe in 1966 and spent the years in Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom; but he never lost touch with the African continent. He met and married Susanne in Cologne. They have two sons. His keen sense of humour is best illustrated in his earlier book, How To Be A Nigerian. Peter Enahoro returned to his homeland in March 1992. The Complete Nigerian was written within months of his arrival. Its quality, filled as ever with his sharp observations of the sparkling idiosyncrasies, indiscretions and contradictions of the Nigerian character, shows that Peter Enahoro has lost nothing of his sensitivity to the peculiarities and joie de vivre of his feJlow country men and women.
