Mallam Adnan Mukhtar, a lecturer at Federal University Dutsin-Ma, is gearing up to launch his revised book, shedding light on his personal experiences during the 2023 elections.
The book, titled “Not Too Young To Run: A Personal Experience,” represents a revised edition enriched with insights into the 2023 elections.
In a statement issued on Monday, Adnan announced that the public presentation and launch of the book would take place in Abuja on a date to be announced soon.
Adnan emphasized that his updated book would offer fresh perspectives to young Nigerians aspiring to engage in the political arena, serving as an eye-opener regarding the obstacles and challenges they may encounter.
He stated, “I have meticulously documented my latest campaign experiences in this revised book. The first edition, published in 2019, focused on my journey as a candidate of the United People Congress (UPC). However, this revised edition, scheduled for launch on an upcoming date, delves into the evolving issues in our elections and campaign commitments.”
“In this revised edition, I delve into the challenges I faced during the elections, from securing the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ticket to contesting in the primaries, where I received only two votes despite numerous promises from various stakeholders.”
Adnan affirmed that this book is a must-read for anyone seeking insights into young Nigerians in the political arena and the influence of young people on politics.
In the book’s foreword, Hon. Muktar Tolani Shagaya, who represents Ilorin West and Asa Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives and serves as Deputy Chairman of the House Committee on Basic Education Services, praised “Not Too Young To Run: A Personal Experience” for illuminating the transformative potential of youth in politics. He commended Adnan’s initiative in documenting his election experiences, describing the book as an invaluable guide and a testament to the nation’s commitment to shaping a brighter future.
