“The former President himself, Dr Goodluck Jonathan will attend the book launch as special guest of honour, while the former military governor of old Rivers State, King Alfred Diete Spiff, will be the royal father of the day.
“The reason I wrote the book in honour of the former President, Jonathan is to chronicle his achievements in office during the six years he served in the nation’s highest office.
“It is also to provide the leadership compass for Nigerians as the 2019 elections draw near.
“The book in its own small way, is to contribute to nation-building, which is expected to inspire other Niger Deltans and indeed Nigerians to aim higher in their endeavours,” Nwankwo stated.
