How to Win Elections in Africa set to be read at the University of Massachusetts

Elections in Africa

The John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies, University of Massachusetts, Boston, is set to hold a book talk with Chude Jideonwo on the book: How to Win Elections in Africa: Parallels with Donald Trump.

The event slated for 5:30 pm (WAT) at the University of Massachusetts Boston Campus Centre, 2nd Floor, Room 2545  is one of the series of tours for the book in Nigeria, U.S., Canada and England.

How to Win Elections in Africa: Parallels with Donald, written from the years of experience garnered by its authors – Chude Jideonwo and Debola Williams – working on presidential campaigns in both Nigeria and Ghana, explores how citizens, through elections, can uproot constrictive power structures.

The book was first launched at Yale University in partnership with the Yale Council on African Studies, at an event during which Bishop Mathew Kukah of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto delivered a culturally resonant keynote speech.

This was followed a day after, by a reading hosted by the Africa at Ohio platform of Ohio University, Athens in the United States and held the third leg at Vancouver, Canada where Chude Jideonwo made a paper presentation at the second International Conference on Communications and Media Studies.

‘How to Win Elections in Africa: Parallels with Donald’ has since been launched at the two most important book festivals in Nigeria – the Lagos Book and Arts Festival (LABAF) in Lagos and the Ake Arts and Book Festival which holds annually in Abeokuta.
