Cliff Edoguns first book The Nigerian Complex is a moving story of friends who strive to create a Nigeria that prospers all.

(PRWEB) April 22, 2015

Cliff Edogun, Ph.D., is an adjunct professor of government at the Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio, and has completed his first book The Nigerian Complex. His story is a gripping and potent tale of two friends of contrasting social and spiritual backgrounds facing the harsh realities of life in a country where the day-to-day struggles include finding access to water and electricity and overcoming bleak economic prospects.

Edogun is Nigerian-born. After earning a Ph.D. in political science from Rutgers University, he returned to lecture at Ahmadu Bello University and the University of Port Harcourt in Nigeria. He returned to Port Harcourt in 1984 and published a few seminal papers on the Nigerian petroleum industry before relocating to America in 1992.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Edoguns poignant tale is about a country rich in oil reserves but bereft of employment opportunities for university graduates. Intensifying the challenge of the oppressive poverty is a government so corrupt that it appears to deliberately prevent its citizens from being heard.

After two years of being jobless, Asuquo Udoh applies for a doorman’s job at the International Airport Hotel. He is willing to accept the only form of employment available to him despite his degree in chemistry. His good friend Demola Martins, an electrical engineer from a family of professional elite, opts to wait for a job more suited to his social rank. Four years later, Demola decides to act on a vision and founds the Campaign Against Rigging Elections (CARE). Asuquo and Demola, along with three other visionaries, form the Crisis Group to head the Campaign, and a youth movement is born. Through peaceful rallying, they push for a more transparent balloting and counting systemthe spot ballot methodwith the ultimate goal of eliminating election rigging to redeem the Nigeria that prospers all.

Readers who wish to experience this inspirational work can purchaseThe Nigerian Complex at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.

New Study Finds Majority of Millennials Distrust All Forms of Advertising, But Close Friends, Digital Channels, Even Online News Sources Rank As Most Trustworthy

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2014

The McCarthy Group (TMG), a leading marketing communications and public relations consultancy, announces results of its new “Engaging Millennials: Trust & Attention Survey” which provides insights into the degree which consumers between the ages of 18 and 34 years old considered different sources of information trustworthy. The survey found most Millennials (84%) do not like or trust all forms of advertising. When asked to rate how much they trust advertising, on a scale from one (the lowest) to five (the highest), the average score was 2.2. In comparison, Millennials rated their closest friends as a trustworthy source of information, with an average score of 4 on the same scale.

The study reinforces the dynamics of the sharing economy, and how strongly this consumer group relies on online news reports, friends on social media and even company websites as trustworthy sources of information, said TMG Founder and CEO Tami McCarthy.

One surprise revealed by the study surfaced among what Millennials value most, and it was not their mobile phone. When asked what they cant live without, nearly half (47%) said the Internet. In comparison, 35 percent said they cannot live without their best friend, and only 15 percent cited their mobile phone.

When it comes to sources they trust, the study also found that the majority of Millennials rely on social/digital media channels (57%) to keep them up-to-date on current events, as opposed to traditional media sources like TV (20%), radio (5%), and magazines and newspapers (9%). Check out the infographic below for additional insights.

McCarthy adds, While many brand marketers consider traditional advertising to be a necessity for competitive reasons, its even more important to pay attention to what gets Millennials attention and wins their trust. For example, if you havent paid much attention to your brands website, you need to show it some love fast. And if you dont have a solid digital content strategy being executed on a continual basis, you are losing valuable opportunities all the time. Its important to get this stuff right now, for the new group of digital natives growing up into powerful consumers.

In its quest to better understand the thoughts and behaviors of Millennials, a key audience for many of its clients, TMG turned to Google Consumer Surveys as a new method to gain these insights from everyday people who are already using the Internet to conduct the business of life.

Todays world moves quickly, and when we need data, we need it now, which is why we were so eager to work with Google Consumer Surveys. Tapping into the power of Google as a resource for data allows you to customize your survey with the topic, target audience and questions, and provides complete results within days, said TMG Partner Daniel McCarthy. We found that the service is easy to use, affordable and accurate, and plan to introduce it to many of our clients so that they can always get the pulse of their hot topics too. We predict that Google Consumer Surveys will become increasingly popular within the PR industry as more of our colleagues learn about this service.

Survey Methodology

The McCarthy Group, a leading marketing communications and public relations consultancy, conducted a national survey in February 2014 to assess the degree to which Millennials considered different sources of information trustworthy. Respondents to the survey were between 18 and 34 years old. The research was conducted by Google Consumer Surveys.
