As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, Brian Munro Limited, makers of Munro’s Glucose D, has donated literature books worth two million naira to primary and secondary schools across different states in Nigeria including Lagos, Rivers, Anambra and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The book, titled “Stories My Father Told Me” which was written by award winning writer, Dr Obii Okwelume will be set up in libraries of all public and select private schools in the states. During the presentation of two thousand copies of the book, Head of Marketing Brian Munro Ltd, Abayomi Ajao, described the company’s gesture as one of its objectives in contributing to the Nigerian education system.
“Stories My Father Told Me” is a collection of tales that can be told on moonlit evenings for the pleasure of young readers as well as seniors. It contains twenty enchanting stories, some of which may have come down from generation to generation, about men and animals, kings and farmers.”
Dr Obii Okwulume also commented on his book, “Somewhere in each story, there is a moral lesson or truth, as the purpose of storytelling in Africa has always been to teach and instruct. These stories are as entertaining, instructive and appealing as they were when they were first told. and we are very certain the book will make the much needed impact we desire in our children”
Dr Obii Okwelume, prolific writer with degrees from Madonna University, London Metropolitan University and the University of Birmingham. He received the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations Award in 2001 for his contributions to drama and literature and also won the RE Bradbury Prize in 2010 for his doctoral thesis from the School of History and Cultures at the University of Birmingham.
