The launch and public presentation of the autobiography of the Paramount Ruler of Obudu, Uti J.D Agba is billed for Saturday, November 18, 2017 at the Calabar International Convention Center, CICC.

HRM Uti Agba is the longest serving monarch in Nigeria and has been Paramount Ruler of Obudu local government area of northern Cross River State for almost 6 decades.

Family sources say Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka will be the Guest Lecturer while the Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar is the chairman of the occasion with former President Olusegun Obasanjo as the special guest of honor.

The book, which was authored by Mr. Agba’s son, Prince Jedy Agba and Mathias Okoi-Uyouyo has enjoyed positive reviews so far from media outfits and literary icons; some of these include:

“A well-researched, brilliantly written and inspiring story.” – Nigerian Chronicle

“Stepping Forward with Uti J.D Agba is an autobiography of high order, intended to sustain the reader’s interest, remain true to historical evidence, and deliver a message, all at the same time… The tendency of the book to be too rich, too sensitive, and too warmly nostalgic, is offset by the unrelenting accuracy of its language.  Goddy Jedy Agba and Mathias Okoi-Uyouyo have written one of the finest portraits of the politician as a biography that the English language has ever known. ” – The Authority

“Its not a simple story of ‘like father, like son,’ but a filtered narration of progenies powered by predecessors and ascending to the heights of challenges and endeavor.” – Professor Kalu Uka

“Stepping Forward with Uti J.D Agba is an autobiography, rich in history, culture and direction.” – Leadership
