Comments on the Herstory Books

Chief Tayo Akpata, renowned public administrator

Professor Grace Alele-Williams, first female vice chancellor in black Africa

You’ll be amazed to find what Nigerian women have done in contemporary times. The achievements of Nigerian women are profiled and published within the volumes to provide role models for fellow Nigerians, the old and young alike, and for posterity.

We must keep our story going, otherwise our children would forget the contributions of some of our women. African women and in particular Nigerian women have proven that our women have a voice and have indeed been major players in our development. This is the idea of Herstory.

Dr. Jim Ovia, former CEO of Zenith Bank PLC

Mrs. Francesco Emanuel, first female administrator in the Nigerian Civil Service

These are books that you will find very interesting to read. We’ll have to appreciate the kind of tremendous positive and constructive roles that women are playing in contemporary society. Their contribution to nation building is quite enormous. The best man for a tough job is a woman. How come women are entrusted with such high positions and responsibilities that require much trust and confidence? You’ll discover the answers when your read these books.

When you read these stories, you’ll discover that there’s nothing impossible in this world. These stories of achievement come from very  small beginnings and all they take is determination. I believe that these will provide the inspiration and role models that our young ones need. Please get at least one set of the books and make sure your children read them.
