Motivational speaker and youth mobilizer, Fela Durotoye, yesterday made history by signing over 10,000 books in 8 hours.

Durotoye, 41, who authored the books, The 17 Secrets of High flying Students and The Dream Subordinate of Every Boss (the Secret to being the Right Candidate for Promotion Always), attempted the book signing feat to encourage the culture of reading among the youth and to send a message that they can achieve whatever they set their mind upon to achieve.

Durotoye, married to style entrepreneur, Tara, trended on the social media network twitter with several congratulatory messages directed at him for his doggedness at sending the ‘Yes, we can’ message to the Nigerian youth.

The book signing initiative was tagged #ReadForPeace
