An author of many inspiring and positive mind-building literary works, John O. Shaibu, has called on Nigerian youths to be steadfast, unshaken and constantly strive for positive change in spite of the nation’s dangling economy. Mr. Shaibu gave the charge at a mental wellness conference themed
YOUTHS STAYING UNBROKEN… THRIVING IN THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY.
The renowned motivational speaker and writer said youths should be driven by positive thinking and determination to achieve success notwithstanding the economy and challenges facing Nigeria.
He added that great countries constantly strive for positivity and growth amongst other nations of the world as youths in these nations contribute and don’t relent but rather make great and new discoveries in order to help their countries. Mr. Shaibu’s latest book titled Unbroken; Channeling the Power of the Mind, was read at the conference in order to stress the author’s charge to the youths.
The inspirational book, Unbroken; Channeling the Power of the Mind, was named Book of the Year in the recently-held Kor Bara Kor Foundation dinner and award night held in Lagos.
The SHTL publishing company Managing Director, Esther Dumbiri, who is the publisher of the book said because of the peculiar nature of the book a lot of research was done in order to be sure of facts and figures. Speaking on the reasons why her publishing firm took interest in the book, Dumbiri said the first attraction was on the personality of the writer and his desire to make the society a better place.
The SHTL Managing Director also used the opportunity to call on government to look into the challenges of book publishing companies as she said her firm always have to source for printing materials abroad.
