It was a Book chronologically detailing all antecedents Singapore under the leadership of Lee Kuan Yew went through before getting to where it is today; the many challenges, sacrifices, political, social and the multifaceted battles with the belief that humans anywhere in the world including Niger Deltans particularly the Ijaws, with the right persons in place  have the capacity to drive the needed change they desire before anyone can do it for them.

Gbaramatu Voice Newspaper learnt that the Book Club started its maiden edition with the National Association of Ogulagha Clan Students, NAOCS with cash prizes allotted to the three winners.

A Niger Delta based Philanthropist, Mr. Godfrey Pondi, through his Book Club, the Godfrey Pondi Book Club demonstrated his clear mission by intellectually building Niger Deltans particularly the Ijaws for the liberational struggle of the region.

“All arrangement is now set to award participants for the Godfrey Pondi Book Club review challenge for members of the National Association of Gbaramatu Students (NAGS).

“The exercise was to award members of the National Association of Gbaramatu Students to reward hardworking participants with mouth watering cash prizes and reward Plaques. 

“The winner of the competition will go home with a cash prize of One Hundred and Fifty Thousand (150,000) naira. The second place winner will go home with One Hundred Thousand (100,000) naira while the third place winner will receive Fifty Thousand Naira (50,000).” Victor Isereke stated.
