During the school visit, Ms. Elmer Aluge, VFD Group’s Soft Power Specialist, and Mr. Odudu Abasi-Okon, Strategy Officer of VFD Group Plc, joined forces with Dr. Eghosa Imasuen, Director of Business Development at Narrative Landscape, to engage with the school’s administrators and students. Together, they shared stories, laughter, and the joy of discovering reading.

In a heartfelt address, Ms. Elmer Aluge urged the students to remain steadfast in their educational pursuits, emphasizing the power of reading. She remarked, “Education is the key that unlocks endless opportunities. Let the pages of ‘Mama’s Sleeping Scarf’ kindle your imagination and propel you towards greatness.”

Moved by the students’ enthusiasm, Dr. Eghosa Imasuen expressed his admiration for their curiosity and promised to relay their gratitude to Chimamanda Adichie, whose work continues to inspire young minds across the globe.

The event concluded with a touching exchange of gratitude as students and teachers presented the VFD Team, Narrative Landscape Press, and Chimamanda’s Publicist with handmade thank-you cards and gift bags.
