Kachifo Limited, which has published some of the continent’s most finest writers including Chimamanda Ngozi-Adichie, Sefi Atta Binyavanga Wainaina has released the cover for ‘Are we the turning point generation?, a new book from Chude Jideonwo; entrepreneur, award-winning journalist and respected young African leader.
“This new book is a literal tour de force of carefully laid out arguments the author’s witty conversational style,” said Eghosa Imasuen, chief operating officer for Kachifo.
Why do many Nigerian leaders ‘change’ once in office? Will the present generation of Nigerians do any better than its predecessors? Was Occupy Nigeria indeed a failure? Do we need a ‘Nigerian Dream’? Is ‘One Nigeria’ really worth it? These are some of the difficult questions raised in this thought provoking collection of essays on the paradox that is Nigeria.
“As Afro pessimism dims, a constellation of stars are circling and Africa is looking brighter again,” said Bishop Matthew Kukah about the impressive new book. “It is hoped that these would brighten the continent of Africa. Chude belongs to one of those stars.”
The cover design was done by one of Nigeria’s most respected artists and author, Victor Ehikhamenor.
The book hits stores from May 2014.
