According to the statement announcing the event, “history beckons on the 12th day of the 12th month in its 12th year, as Enough is Enough Nigeria (EiE) hosts a public presentation of its book of 12 chapters that reflects on its history through the eyes of its founders and partners. Titled, Footprints: Past. Present. Future, Christopher Kolade writes the foreword and the contributors are as diverse as Aisha Yesufu and Tunde Bakare to 2Baba and Seun Onigbinde”.
In addition to the book presentation, the event will also feature EiE’s pre-election fundraising auction across art, fashion and photography, with pieces donated by leaders in their respective sectors like Bruce Onabrakpeya, Deola Sagoe and Kelechi Amadi-Obi.
This book, the statement adds, is positioned as a collector’s item because of its unique style of presenting timely information about citizens’ rights & responsibilities in the context of a growing democracy. The time is also strategic as Nigerians take steps towards ensuring all registered voters can select credible candidates; vote without violence and protect their votes on election day, and in the four years that follow by holding public servants accountable.
Speaking about the event, the Executive Director of EiE, ‘Yemi Adamolekun said, “I am very excited that this book, which is a labour of love over 3 years, is finally here! I am also delighted that our generous donors have once again chosen to support our work with their participation in our pre-election auction.”
