Author of ‘An Irony of History’, ‘The Dynamic Evolution of Russo-African Relations’, and ‘Nigeria’s Arrested Development’, Chukwudi Ukonne, believes in minimalist writing. ‘If a sentence still makes sense without a certain word, then that word goes. If I can express a thought clearly in a sentence, I won’t write a paragraph. I strive for brevity.’
