This volume provides the nexus between language and politics in Nigeria, the world’s most populous Black nation, where civilian rule is slowly but steadily morphing into deliberative democracy. Using a combination of traditional and new models, the contributions adopt linguistic and literary perspectives to analyse and discuss different socio-discursive engagements in the Nigerian democratic experience. New approaches from Digital Humanities show the impact of the ongoing digital revolution and developments in the Humanities. More traditional papers offer compelling insights on both the discursive and non-discursive habits of the contemporary Nigerian political actors in an effort to more
fruitfully profile their identity while defining their attitude and level of commitment to delivering ‘dividends of democracy’. This volume is an ambitious scholarly effort to critically comment on emerging themes and discursive practices in today’s Nigerian political space, which may be relevant in other socio-political contexts.
