In writing the Book, WE HAVE TO BELONG, the Author is emphatic about certain home truths. There is therefore a palpable feeling of urgency throughout the script as the author takes the reader through an unmistakably rigorous journey around an ever-budding nation ridden with daunting challenges alongside the prospects these unwittingly throw up. The reader is at once immersed in the ongoing turbulence that is the author’s literary stomping grounds, as she traverses the Nigerian historical landscape with the vantage authority of an eyewitness who has chosen to peer way below the surface of the unfolding reality.This is a little more than a book because even as we meander around the bumps and the undulating waves of upheavals which this book introduces into the uneasy calm of our gaze across the political vista of Nigeria, a more numbing realization settles upon our shoulders
– We are smack in the eye of this storm.
What people are saying
We Have To Belong is as much a terrific call to action as it is a haunting assessment of humanity’s growing inability to govern itself. At its core, this book was written from the heart and soul of an author who understands that humanity is bigger than any one individual, but who also recognizes that one individual can change humanity. Akerele-Ogunsiji has provided the blueprint and the rationale for the 21st Century leader. Her work could not have come at a more important time.
