Are we the turning point generation?

May 18, 2014

This is an absorbing book. With healthy doses of cynicism and wit, the author vividly captures the essence of our collective disillusionment and the overwhelming temptation to defer the promise of our greatly endowed nation to a generation yet unborn. Yet the author succeeds marvellously in challenging us to believe in our capacity and duty to redeem our broken nation. Jideonwo makes the case, firmly and confidently, I salute the author for this compelling narrative – and hope that it will rekindle hope in his generation, and mine.
