Divided into sections and chapters, The Powers That Be (Thoughts And Reflections on People, Power & Politics), offers insightful analysis of developments in public sphere in Nigeria and the world.
While reflecting on the people, power and politics that define the country and elsewhere, the author expresses his opinions on critical issues, from the fringe of the Sahara to the Atlantic coastline.
The book has chapters, such as: Theatre of the Absurd, People who can’t be Ignored, Economic Equilibrium, The Obasanjo years, From Yar’Adua to Jonathan, Unforgetable Experiences and The 2015 election.

Speaking on the book, the author, Ukeh, said it was his views on socio-political and economic development.
“The book is simply the story of Nigeria and the world written over the years as they happened. It is the view of a critical journalists/columnist who is both disappointed and satisfied with the conducts of people in government and corridors of power.”
He said readers will find the chapter: “Hitting the Bull’s Eye,” which focused on things that eventually came to pass precisely interesting.
