Third Term President, written by Joseph Godwin Ochie, a University of Nigeria-trained Political Scientist, is a predictive of the demise to which a perpetuation of self in power by a Nigerian president, who shall forever remain nameless, is to be fated. The play's power of prediction of escalations, of quest for power, more power and power again, of rot, of democratic tyranny, of isolation of the leaders from the rest of the society and of hollow rituals known as elections is validated by what lately hugely plague the country. President Bande, an ex-military Head of State tastes civilian power and, as the leaders of Third World Countries are wont to, wants to remain a life president of his country. Will he succeed?
