Discusses the theme of change in Nigeria, constructed around the personality of MJP Koledade. A socio-historical study anchored within the conceptual frame of an incorporation process. First of its kind on any of the large communities in the Niger/Benue confluence area of Nigeria. It is the story of a self-made man who stamped his indelible imprint on the course of his people's history during a crucial period of transition; of a mission/church organization (SIM/ECWA) hitherto ignored by church historians; and of the little-known O'kun Yoruba people of the Niger/Benue confluence area.
