During the launch of his new book titled, “The Prize for the Prize, at the weekend in Lagos, the author noted that the title of the literary work was informed by problem-solving disposition.

He said the literature was to positively impact the current generation via requisite perseverance and problem-solving skills for them to know that there is always a price to pay before achieving the goal (prize).
In his remarks, the book reviewer, Vincent Igbinedion, pointed out that the work was apt and addressed the realities in Nigeria.
