Chude Jideonwo’s New Book asks “Are We The Turning Point Generation?”



Chude - New BookHe has been called “One of Africa’s new stars” by Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah – The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese.

Now Kachifo Limited, which has published some of the continent’s most finest writers including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Binyavanga Wainaina is gearing up to release “Are We the Turning Point Generation?“, a new book from Chude Jideonwo; entrepreneur, award-winning journalist and respected young African leader.

This new book is a literal tour de force of carefully laid out arguments the author’s witty conversational style,” said Eghosa Imasuen, chief operating officer for Kachifo.

  • Why do many Nigerian leaders ‘change’ once in office?
  • Will the present generation of Nigerians do any better than its predecessors?
  • Was Occupy Nigeria indeed a failure?
  • Do we need a ‘Nigerian Dream’? Is ‘One Nigeria’ really worth it?

These are some of the difficult questions raised in this thought provoking collection of essays on the paradox that is Nigeria.

“As Afro pessimism dims, a constellation of stars are circling and Africa is looking brighter again,” said Bishop Matthew Kukah about the impressive new book. “It is hoped that these would brighten the continent of Africa. Chude belongs to one of those stars.

      Advise not advice. Go grab a copy of ‘Brighter grammar or Queen’s English’. Trust me, it goes a long way.

    no we are not! i think this generation will do worse than previous generation. with 30 something year old women who are obsessed with kim kardashian to 30 something year old men who still live in their rich father’s houses partying every week and drinking alcohol while “importing” escorts from all over the world. i call this the 140 character generation.
