Hello good people of the world,

Good news! If you’re Nigerian and you’re used to Pentecostal churches, you would be clapping now. Otherwise, just clap anyway.

So, I had a giveaway, put out things people would need to do, and the deadline they’d need to send their entries in by.

Only one person sent in answers, IVY BEN, and so automatically they became my winner! She placed her order (remember the deal was books only), and the books came in on the weekend!

2014-03-16 09.38.32-1

The books are here, next thing is to send them to Nigeria this weekend, and ship them off to her!

PS – A lot of comments said they didn’t quite understand the rules of the competition. I sincerely apologise, and I will make it good (by organizing another giveaway soonest). In the meantime, the first six people to leave a comment get one of the following books given to me (and this cause) by my friends.

1. Preside or lead: the attributes and actions of effective regulators by Scott Hempling (three of this)

2.  “Democracy and prebendalism in Nigeria: Critical interpretations. Edited by Adebanwi and Obadare

3. Rewire: Digital cosmopolitans in the age of connection by Ethan Zuckerman.

4. The Message Bible. I mistakenly ordered two instead of one and so instead of returning one, I’m going to give it to one lucky person. Lucky because this Bible is so beautiful!

Mention the book you want in your comment so the next person sees that it’s already been taken and I don’t have the Solomon issue of dividing one book into halves to satisfy anyone (lol…)

Have a good week!

  4. IVY BEN says:

    Glad to hear the books will ‘land’ soon. Pls I’d love all signed too. Anything witty & inspirational. Tanx.


  5. Yay! New books.
    I didn’t even know when you had the giveaway


  6. Oh and I want the third book.
    Ethan Zuckerman


  7. am I late or not? hmm, I am in though, but for some reason, I cant see the names of the books, don’t know why, will be back


  8. Nonye says:

    Dear FGS, I would love to partake in the giveaway but I can’t see the books nor the rest of the instructions because the texts are overlapping. I hope I get a chance to make a choice when the site is sorted out.


  9. Nonye says:

    It’s sorted now, so I’ll go for 3.) Rewire: Digital cosmopolitans in the age of connection by Ethan Zuckerman


  10. Dede says:

    Am I too late? If not I wouldn’t mind no1 🙂


  11. Dede says:

    Actually I think I would like no 2


    • Make up your mind Dede!! There are three copies of number one, so you’re welcome to have that. There’s only one copy of number two, so decide so the next person to comment doesn’t get confused ok?


  12. Dede says:

    Sorry for the confusion, I would like no2 . Thanks


  13. Dede says:

    Thanks..if you don’t mind, can I get it signed too?


  14. Jenna O says:

    I´d love number 3 🙂


  15. Hello everyone! If we could email a physical address and a phone number to dfairygodsister(at)yahoo(dot)com telling me again the title (and) number of the book you picked.

    Except Ivy Ben, whose details I’ve had for a little bit. Cos I’m in Nigeria in a bit and I’d be posting them off or putting them in buses headed your way (whichever is easier/more reliable) soon as I get in. Yeah? So please send them in!


  16. […] quick update on my giveaway (I must be the worst person you have seen do a giveaway, sigh), I sent off these six books to Ivy […]
