Zulum, Shettima to attend Hadizatu Mustapha’s book presentation Feb 5

Babagana Zulum of Borno State

Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum and his predecessor Kashim Shettima have been scheduled to attend the public presentation of the biography of the immediate past chief registrar of the Supreme Court, Hadizatu Mustapha.

Titled Hadizatu U. Mustapha: From Head Girl to Supreme Court, the presentation will take place on Saturday, February 5 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

Zulum will be chief host at the event, while Shettima will be the chief presenter of the book written by Dotun Adekanmbi, a media relations practitioner and former editor of Business Times, with Sa’adatu Lawal-Ahmed, a rising author and lawyer with the Supreme Court.

The book published by Havilah Group tells the story of the career of Mustapha who retired in August 2021 as the second female to hold the distinguished position of chief registrar of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

“I agreed to the proposal to tell my story because it helps to illustrate my firm belief that the girl-child in Nigeria can achieve her best, if given the kind of unwavering support that I got from my own parents,” Mustapha said, adding that the book would help to clarify her passion for promoting the interest of the girl child.

Adekanmbi said: “I was fascinated by the story of how Hajiya Hadizatu Mustapha’s parents, her father especially saw far into the future and accurately predicted her rise to the peak of her career. I was also fascinated by how she effortlessly builds and maintains a formidable network of friends and associates across socio-economic classes just by being so caring, hardworking and unassuming.”

Chief executive of Havilah Group Lanre Adesuyi described the book as “a seed planted for posterity.”
