Musings: Reflections of a Burdened Soul is a collection of insightful essay-like stories in twenty-six chapters, birthed out of Dr Reju's irrepressible desire to address Nigerian and global issues and suggest remedies to both local and global maladies. The book is a compilation and improvement of Reju's Facebook posts couched as thoughts on various topical issues written over a decade, each simply closed with "Just Musing".
As a transcontinental creative nonfiction, the book revolves around the vicissitudes and intricacies of both local and global realities, ranging from governance, racial and tribal relations, power interplay, nationhood, inter alia.
The book does not only expose but also carefully dissects the aforementioned issues, and the writer at once skilfully announces the need and potency of imbibing the culture of cerebration, critical thinking and reflection as a way out of man's most dire quagmires.
Musings, therefore, invites Nigerians to rethink their choices as they brace up to cast their votes in the forthcoming elections; and it equally invites us all to imbibe the culture of reflection and work out a plan towards well-informed actions. 'Very timely' wouldn't be a bad way to describe this outing.
