‘Nigeria Heroes and Sheroes: Diary of a Journalist of Courage’, a memoir by Ken Ugbechie, is now available on Amazon.
Ugbechie, who is a former editor of Daily Times and Post Express newspapers, released the 644-page book in Lagos on April 6.
Ugbechie said the book was published to “celebrate development in Nigeria and recognise the people who have sustained the spirit of nationalism and productivity.”
He said the book is now available on Amazon and can be obtained by readers globally.
“The book periscopes Nigeria’s journey through the decades. It chronicles a people’s march through a forest of hope, faith, triumphs and trials,” the author said.
“It details, with clarity, the author’s perspectives on every sector of our national existence. The choice of title, Heroes and Sheroes, is deliberate.
“Regardless of the multitude of challenges tugging at the nation, there is still an oasis of hope created by outstanding men and women whose sweat ensured that we still have a country geographically so defined.”
‘Nigeria Heroes and Sheroes: Diary of a Journalist of Courage’ was published by Godson and Godman, the publishers of Political Economist NG.
Prominent figures whose efforts were recognised in the book are Messrs Udom Emmanuel, Nyesom Wike, Nasir El-Rufai, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Akiwunmi Ambode, Dave Umahi, Ifeanyi Okowa, Emmanuel Uduaghan, and Peter Obi.
