Osoba to unveil second book ‘My Life in the Public Eye’ July 13



A former governor of Ogun, Chief Okusegun Osoba,is set to unveil his new book ‘My Life in the Public Eye’ on July 13.

The new book, which is Osoba’s second publication, is a follow-up to his 2019 memoir titled ‘Battlelines: Adventures in Journalism and Politics’.

Diamond Publications, publisher of the new book, said ‘My Life in the Public Eye’ is unique because it documents public reactions to Osoba’s first publication.

The book also features some of the author’s historical reflections on issues of public interest since 2019.

“Osoba tells the story essentially through the eyes of some leading public intellectuals, such as Ray Ekpu, Reuben Abati, Abdu Rafiu, Bisi Olawunmi, Yakubu Mohammed, Louis Odion, Dele Momodu, Dare Babarinsa, Azuh Arinze, Yinka Fabowale, Dapo Aderinola, and Dele Momodu,” a statement issued on Tuesday by the publisher reads.

“As a book of record, it carries probing analyses from Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Dapo Olorunyomi, Sam Akpe, Chido Nwakanma, and Festus Adedayo. It also features the penetrating insights of Generals Ibrahim Babangida, Abdusalam Abubakar (Rtd.), and Governor Dapo Abiodun.

“Osoba’s My Life in the Public Eye provides a handy measurement of his politics and person and represents a legacy work that enriches the literature on the makers of the Nigerian state and its media.”
