FOUNDER of the Authors Guild International Michael Ezenwata has officially presented his book “The Great Dicta of Michael Ezenwata” to the public.

  The event took place at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Anambra State Council Secretariat, Godwin Ezeemo International Press Centre, Awka

  The chairman of the occasion, Ken Nwuba, who said that educational prowess is superior to money, emphasised that education pays more than anything.

Prof. Nwuba encouraged the intellectuals to begin to market the idea of promoting their intellectual prowess, stressing that it would help to shape and change the future, noting that “this is our chance”.

  He expressed disappointment that most of our graduates could not write simple sentences correctly.

  “Get our people to know that their liberation revolve around education; good education wipes away ignorance, poverty, others.

  “Let’s begin to consciously train ourselves, our children, friends in godliness. When we begin to pursue the things of this world from that perspective, crime will come down.

  “Because we are not throwing gun, our people in the university would go into cultism and kill their fellow students, using their heads to play football.” He then commended Mr Ezenwata, describing him as a man of ideas.

  The book reviewer, Emma Nwobu said “The Great Dicta of Michael Ezenwata” -21st Century Edition is a collection of 100 properly articulated wise sayings, a must read for all.

  Associate Prof. Nwobu while describing Ezenwata as a great writer noted that investing in education is very important, even as he urged all to encourage writers to do more.

  “Ezenwata passes the message across the board, touching our psychological mind, home, society and every aspect of life through selected words.

  “It is the knowledge that you acquired that would make you what you will be in the future.

“It is the knowledge that your children acquired that would make them excel and be recognised across the world.”

  He cited dictum 69: The world is like a plain sheet of paper and we individuals inhibiting it are like uncountable pens struggling to create one’s own impression on it.

  He said that the book contained everyday realities of life, believing that the book will go worldwide, urging all to nurture the God’s gift in them and make it a fruition.

 Earlier in a welcome address, the author, Mr Ezenwata commended his guests, explaining that their presence was a moral booster for him to forge ahead in his second nature (writing).

  Ezenwata said that it took him 28 years after the 1994 publication of the Great Dicta of Michael Ezenwata, another collection of 100 quotable quotes, to produce the one he was presenting.

  According to him, the quotes are not only legendary, educational, provocative and inspiring, but deeply spiritual, capturing the real essence of life.

  “The quotes also provide escape routes to numerous challenges facing man in the society he finds himself.”

  Ezenwata explained that quotes of this nature were very imperative and instructive as they have the capacity to inform the uninformed, educate the uneducated, embolden the weak, console the depressed, empower the less privileged, and to direct the visionless.

  He, then, urged government at all levels to aim at promoting the reading culture in the society, award scholarships to best essay writers, equip libraries, others.

  Ezenwata while welcoming Gov. Charles Soludo on board, enjoined him to synergise with writers, journalists and media practitioners in the state to facilitate his administrative vision.

  Some dignitaries that graced the event included the mothers of the day Prof. Nneka Nnorom, and Mrs Gloria Obiora-Ibezim, Mr Tony Nezieanya, former SSA to Gov. Willie Obiano on Media.

  Others were Odogwu Emeka Odogwu, Chairman, NUJ Anambra State and Igwe Benjamin Okeji of Omasi.
