The Special Adviser to the Imo State Governor on Diaspora Affairs, Honourable Cllr Osakwe-Hibbert, former president of Nigeria His Excellency Ebere Goodluck Jonathan and several other recognisable names have made the exclusive list to a special virtual book launch by leading Diasporan expatriates, Dr & Mrs Balogun-Wilson.
The virtual book launch which would be a one-of-a-kind event would be hosted by the daughter of the couple who is also the author of the book titled: A Teenager in Lockdown – A Survivor’s Story.
The book’s author Favour Balogun-Wilson is a young writer who was inspired by the likes of Cllr Osakwe-Hibbert and other young amazons who are breaking records in their careers and endeavours. This inspiration was what pushed her to create this spectacular piece of literary art.
This is why the special invite sent to Honourable Cllr Osakwe-Hibbert was dedicated to her steadfast work as a role model and inspiration to youths, girls and young entrepreneurs in Nigeria and Africa at large. She was also commended on her leadership style and the way she has used her numerous positions to influence the lives of her wards while serving as a sterling inspiration to new generations in the diaspora business
