My Bio

Jimanze Ego-Alowes is an independent scholar, with a focus on power, its nature, distributions and implications for stability in social or political systems.

This has led to a string of 7 books, each x-raying one or various aspects of the power conundrum. Many of these books are now considered as path-breaking for their insights and enjoy critical successes. For instance, according to The Guardian, Lagos: ”Ego-Alowes is a master of mercurial logic… he brings innovative, faultless, cutting-edge erudition to bear on his thesis.”

And for the respected economist, Dr. Boniface Chizea: Ego-Alowes shares an uncommon and thought-provoking perspective on the subject matter which is at once refreshing, enthralling and fundamental. Some of the assertions had an effect on me as that of coming into a sudden awareness and realization of some of the facts regarding the existential realities of Nigeria.

Jimanze, educated at the University of Nigeria Nsukka, is also a businessman, with a speciality in strategy and public relations. Jimanze lives with his family in Lagos.

For, this unwelcome and embarrassing deficit of scientific and analytic contributions must be made whole. is thus a project to reverse this order of contributory failures. In other words, we shall first alert ourselves to these embarrassing failures and suggest ways out of its woods.

That is is a platform to showcase solid, world-class intellectual productions and contributions by African, and not our bleeding hearts. shall separate ”university orators” who reiterate extant knowledge from genuine scholars who advance knowledge.
