"Set at a period when trans-national terrorism and trafficking thrived in Africa, Omo beams on the hawkish realities of the girl-child in contemporary Africa."
"A work of audacity and courage, Omo opens subjects for public discourse, such that will confront the scourge of human trafficking, gender based violence and abuse of the girl child across many fronts."
"With sardonic wit and unmatched creativity, Alexander Emmanuel Ochogwu has proven, through this work, to be a master of satire and socio-cultural euphemisms."
"As Nigeria's One Customer Bank, we are glad to be associated with the Omo project, and hopeful that this book will reinforce the sterling qualities of the girl-child."
"We Must take this advocacy campaign to the streets, and every home, until the last girl in Nigeria is liberated and secured."

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”Nelson Mandela | Long Walk to Freedom
