Comfort Enotse married a man who wouldn't let anything get in the way of his ambition.
While patiently waiting at his hospital bedside, she looks back on her long life in Nigeria, from her childhood as a clever young girl in the village of Agila up to her current position as wife of the Ogaba Idu.
She re-evaluates her relationship with her husband's second, much younger, and over-indulged wife and the way the two of them have brought up their children in very different ways. One seeks to keep her daughters demure and properly behaved, while the other prepares hers for a brighter future where women are no longer beholden to their husbands.
Nobody Knows Tomorrow is a fascinating insight into everyday life for the women of Nigeria, and Comfort Enotse's life takes her through the political landscape in unexpected ways.
