A collection of selected speeches of the Prime Minister, Alhaji the Right Honourable Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa. These speeches contain so much of the philosophy of Sir Abubakar as a politician, as a statesman and, above all, as a Nigerian, that it would be a great loss for the country, for Africa, and for the world at large, if they were not assembled together for easy reference.
