Aisha Buhari: Book on Inspiration to be Included in Curriculum

Kuni Tyessi in Abuja

The first lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has announced that her office will work towards including the book titled ‘Stop, Turn it Around’ into schools’ ‎curriculum, especially for secondary school students as a result of its rich inspirational and motivational content.

Speaking at the launch of the book in Abuja, she said it is necessary not only for the girl-child but for all students and adults, as it promises to have a positive impact on their lives.

Mrs. Buhari, who was represented by an aide, Hajiya Bintu Muazu, said humans must continue to see the good and the bad in all spheres of life in order to value and appreciate life.
“I will advise that the book should be introduced to schools as part of the curriculum‎ for students to have it as one book to be read for impact in their lives.

“The book will impact on all and not just on women. If you don’t see trials in life, you cannot enjoy success when it comes. In every hardship, there is relief‎ and as such, we all must never give up concerning our pursuit in life.”

The author of the book, Kenny St. Brown, in her speech which was in a poetry-like summation, talked briefly about her life and the wrong path and decisions she had taken, as well as the implication for wrong choices. She said she got inspired to write the 140-page novel when she determined to make a comeback and right the wrongs.

“We all love to see our drams come to reality. But every dream carries its own peculiar challenges. That can change, damage or even destroy its template.

“Every one of us fights the wars of why, what, when, where, who and how did our dreams get marred? We invariably get stuck, suffer setbacks and become fruitless and unproductive.

“As we have been mandated to be fruitful, replenish and subdue in our individual pursuit, ‘Stop, Turn it Around’ is a recommended guide-book to go from those setbacks to great comebacks,” she added.
