Her words: “Dialogue still remains the most important thing. We need to sit and talk as a people and to find a way to bring peace to this country.
“We need to ensure that relationships are right at home, not seeing what divides us as a family but what brings us together, because a nation is family.”
Speaking on the book, Oritsejafor stated that she decided to pen her thoughts down due to the challenges facing relationships and marriages globally.
She noted that people spend more time investing in their businesses and little on their relationships, adding that it negatively affects other aspects of their lives.

“The book stems from my accumulated years of experience being married and other aspects of life.
“I won’t say I have seen it all, but I have had a bit of it in life and I just want to make sure that the new generation, even older ones can make it right and the new generation will pick up from what you have already established, having a lasting relationship to the glory of God,” she said.
