Legit.ng gathered that Enugu-born Atuejide will launch her book titled ‘The Girl Who Said “I Can!”' and her NGO, Public Accountability and Women Empowerment Foundation (PAWEF) on Thursday, February 7 in Abuja.
According to a statement from her media office, the book is a must-read for aspiring leaders - particularly women, and it chronicles the journey of Atuejide from the slums of Iwaya, Lagos state, to being the youngest ever female presidential candidate in Nigeria.
The statement also added that the book will be available for purchase on Amazon and other online platforms from February 7.
Atuejide is best known for founding the youth-led, technology-driven political party known as the National Interest Party (NIP) in Nigeria.
A lawyer and businesswoman, Atuejide's NIP is reputed to be the world’s first online based political party, in 2018.
Meanwhile, a civil society organisation, Youth Empowerment Solutions (YES), has launched a campaign against violence as Nigeria prepares for the 2019 general elections scheduled for February 16 and March 2.
The campaign tagged 'I Stand 4 Peace' is geared towards raising awareness that will engender peace, before, during and after elections.
Speaking at a press briefing/media launch of the campaign on Monday, January 21, Oche-Precious Edeh, the convener of the group, said YES will collaborate with other groups to embark on campaign tour of the country during the campaign.
