The Mudskippers

by Peter Omoko

The Mudskippers dramatises the socio-political malaise that constitutes the political bedrock of Nigeria and other African states. The play illuminates a significant contemporary Nigerian predicament, which is the problem of unexecuted contracts in its bloody propensity. The play reveals the complicit roles played by the government officials in the unending crises bedevilling the infrastructural decay that have become entrenched in all sectors of the Nigerian social and political space. It can also be read as a morality tale which seeks to restrain politicians from dispossessing the people they are meant to govern.
