Olugbode however noted that the book is receiving global attention as it already has several reviews on Amazon.
"The author of "Set Sail" did a great job in meticulously organizing the chapters such that readers would be hungry for more once a chapter has been read. I wish to urge youths to read "Set Sail", most especially in this era of youth advocacy and political inclusiveness. This book will prepare youngsters for the much anticipated paradigm shift in the Nigerian political space with the requisite knowledge and instruction to guide and direct them in the right path.
" "Set Sail" is doing amazingly well in the international community with several reviews on Amazon. You can't afford to end this year without a copy of "Set Sail". The book will serve as a motivation for you into the year 2019.", Olugbode said.
On what inspired him to write the book, "Set Sail", the Cross River-born enterpreneur and youth activist, Louis Orok Bassey, said: " I've been privileged to be under the tutelage of several mentors of whom I learned from their wealth of wisdom. Over the past 5 years, I've been reading autobiographies of great men and women, people who made impact on their lifetime, and so, that is where the idea of "Set Sail" came about."
Giving brief insights on the book and how it intends to help the youths, the multi talented author said that "Set Sail" would help navigate youths through their journey in life to their destinations and help them in the process of self-discovery and rediscovery, adding that "the book is a classic motivational book meant to inspire you and give you the needed push and motivation to get to your yonder".
According to the writer, the 150 page book can be purchased from reputable online book retailing stores such as Amazon, Okada book, Jumia and on local book shops nationwide.
