The Ebony Herald International Magazine has held the Day 2 of her annual Hall of Fame and Dignity 2023 event with the dinner and book presentation ceremony at the Stonehedge Hotel and Suites on Thursday, 9th November.
The highlight of the ceremony dubbed “An Evening With the Chairman Editorial Board,” was the presentation of the book, “THE CRITIQUE,” by M.K Ilyasu.
Dignitaries from far and near graced the occasion. Gen. Aldulmalik Halidu Giwa (rtd.) was the chairman of the event, His Eminence, Mallam Ahmed Nuhu Bamali CFR, LLD was the royal father of the day, while the guest speaker was Dr. Hassan Gimba, the Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Neptune Prime, Abuja.
In his speech, the author of the book, Mallam M.K Ilyasu, spoke on his inspiration to write the book which was the need to have effective and quality leadership to move the country forward in the face of mounting challenges in the areas of insecurity, banditry, terrorism etc. He also suggested ways of dealing with poverty in the land with skills acquisition at the forefront rather than depending on the government by the youths.

Speaking on the subject, “Renew Hope for Unity and Progress,” Dr. Hassan Gimba said lack of hope can lead people to commit suicide. He expressed regret that President Muhammadu Buhari had two opportunities to write his name in gold and join the Mahatma Ghandis, the Lee Kwan Yus, etc of the world but flunked both opportunities.
He explained that the people wanted a change from the old way of corruption, ineptitude and waste but lamented that the APC government, from the time of Buhari, failed to provide these.

He wondered why the government will leave made in Nigeria cars, for example, and be buying from other countries thereby enriching those countries at the expense of Nigeria.
He called for all of these to be addressed to check insecurity and other vices bedeviling the nation and suggested that election issues in courts should be settled before swearing in the eventual political leaders. He also advocated for health care reforms that will put an end to the need for seeking medical care abroad by Nigerians as an example of the need to be self-reliant and grow the naira against other currencies.


Alhaji Ayinde Soaga did the book critique explaining the book contains sixteen chapters. He went on to give a chapter-to-chapter analysis of the book rounding up with the decision that all and sundry should get the book as it highlights pragmatic approaches to solving the many challenges facing the country.
The next phase of the event saw the dignitaries coming out in their numbers to launch the book with various sums after which they were entertained.
