10-yr-old Aisha Ismail, daughter of renowned philanthropist and serial entrepreneur, Munira Suleiman Tanimu, has launched her first children’s storybook on banditry.
The book, titled the Adventure of Princess Khadijah, launched on her 10th birthday in Abuja on Saturday, 25th September 2021, focuses on issues around banditry that has become the order of the day in Nigeria.
“Each time I hear a school is being closed down because some schoolchildren were kidnapped, I feel so sad that we are being deprived of our fundamental rights to quality education” Aisha expresses.
Aisha’s book which expresses her inspiration, which is suitable for children shows how a brave princess Khadijah and her friends helped the kingdom to end banditry.
She expresses hope that Nigeria would soon be a place where every child will go to school without the fear of being kidnapped but wants government at all levels to pay more attention to security.
In her words, “The Adventure of Princess Khadijah speaks to the future of my country as a peaceful nation where boys and girls of school age will go to school without fear of being kidnapped. It speaks to the hope that our founding fathers promised. It speaks to the land flowing with milk and honey, it speaks to the nation, Nigeria of our dream.
“It’s a beautiful read. I love it…!” Nollywood actor, Kunle Remi commented.
