Aisha Ismail, daughter of renowned philanthropist and serial entrepreneur, Munira Suleiman Tanimu, has launched her first children’s storybook on banditry, in Abuja on Saturday, 25th September 2021.

The book, titled the Adventure of Princess Khadijah which was launched on her 10th birthday, dwells on issues around banditry that has become the order of the day in Nigeria.

“Each time I hear a school is being closed down because some schoolchildren were kidnapped, I feel so sad that we are being deprived of our fundamental rights to quality education” Aisha speaks of her inspiration to put her first book together.

It’s a storybook suitable for children as it shows how a brave princess Khadijah and her friends helped the kingdom to end banditry.

Aisha said she believed Nigeria would soon be a place where every child will go to school without the fear of being kidnapped but wants government at all levels to pay more attention to security.
