Why do many Nigerian leaders change once they get to the position of power? Will the Present generation do any better than its predecessors? Do we need the "Nigerian Dream"?  Is  'One  Nigeria' really worth it? These and many other difficult questions are raised in this thought provoking collection of essays on the paradox that is Nigeria. The book "Are We The Turning Point Generation?" written by Chude Jideonwo depicts how African youths can drive their urgent revolution.

Written with the Keenness of youth but earnest and wise beyond its years, "Are We The Turning Point Generation"? will resonate with young Nigerians while remaining relatable to the previous generations. This book embodies the voice of new breed Nigerians willing to take a stand and do things differently. "Are We The Turning point Generation"? Promises to Inspire a new way of thinking ,posing a challenge to Nigerians; young and old,to pick a spot  and start digging!

"How to Win Elections in Africa" is another amazing book co-authored by Chude Jideonwo and Adebola Williams. It explores how citizens, through elections, can uproot the power structures that govern them. It draws examples from within and outside Africa, whilst examining the past and present in a bid to map a future where the political playing field is level and citizens can rewrite existing narratives. Africa stands at the cusp of remarkable change. Citizens across the continent are finally coming to terms with the fact that only they—albeit collectively—wield the most important powers: to elect, to impeach and generally demand the accountability of those in whom they repose political powers. In Nigeria, The Gambia, Ghana, Seychelles, South Africa, Kenya, Liberia, Senegal, Rwanda (to mention a few), citizens have and are demanding the dissolution of political structures and establishments that no longer serve them well.
Through their pioneer nation-building agency, StateCraft Inc, the authors of "How To Win Elections In Africa" have not only encouraged the galvanization towards a citizen-led democratic takeover across the continent, they have also helped ensure successes of these takeovers in at least three Presidential elections in Ghana and Nigeria. Their experiences in this regard, garnered through years of interacting with Africa’s large youth population, is what they have drawn on to write this compendium of essays. The book explores the factors often ignored by social and political activists, donors, campaign organisers, social engineers and citizens alike; factors that actually contribute to successful elections globally and how they feed into the peculiar African set-up.

With 35 chapters written with the most optimistic tone, "How to Win Elections in Africa" goes through the political institutions of every modern democracy and breaks down how each one from political parties to civil societies, donors and social activists, as well as factors such as legacy, messaging, media, and money feeds into the goal of helping citizens make their voices heard through free and fair elections. The book was launched in Yale and the authors have been on a book tour of the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
