The Power To Make A Choice

Sunday 4 December 2011, author(s)-editor(s) Elizabeth Ngozi Okpalaenwe

Is it possible to make a difference in your life that no one else has ever made? What difference will you make as an individual in your life’s situations? Have you ever considered yourself a possible obstacle to your future plans? Some people toil and amass knowledge and fame to make a difference. Some engage in a life of politics where they believe they can make a difference. Still, there are some who make a difference in a quiet way and move the world on. The difference you make may lead to negative or positive results and both ways have a price. It is worth exploring the powers you have and discovering the real you. Life is full of surprises. Life around you might be ignorant but you have the potential to move to a better understanding. This story portrays and affirms the uniqueness of each person: how one moves on in life amidst all the difficulties that life presents. Life is beautiful if we are able to challenge what we can and accept what we cannot change. The Power to Make a Choice is a powerful story on how to look within ourselves to make a difference.

  • The Power To Make A Choice 4 December 2011 16:58, author(s)-editor(s) Peter Suh-Nfor Tangyie

    The Power to Make a Choice, highlights the question of choice in human life in a very innovative manner. Major concerns about Cameroon’s political landscape which feature in the works of a number of preceding writers, are reiterated with a new voice. These include, brain drain, the antipathy between French speaking and English speaking Cameroonians, partisan politics, election squabbles, unemployment, the judiciary, the economy, the cancerous bribery and corruption and many more. These issues are developed as the main story of Joe’s family life unfolds. Themes in this novel are as myriad as in her first novel, The Power to Succeed, but the style and structure here, impress greater mastery of the art.
