This book presents Jurgen Habermas thought on deliberative democracy, absence of which breeds misrule, anarchy and lawlessness.
Habermas held that humans can have rational communication that will lead to the democratisation of societies through consensus, hence, genuine democracy is rooted in the principle of deliberation and communicative rationality, a conclusion that raises concerns for Nigeria democracy, which is not open, equal, free and transparent for public discussion and collective decision making on affairs that deals with the people.
