Acheru explains his passion, secret behind A Thousand Times On Same Road
Ahead of the release of his book, A Thousand Times On The Same Road, China Acheru has explained the passion that led him to complete the work.
Speaking on a radio show, Acheru disclosed, “First, it was my passion for keeping records which I inherited from my father, who was the former Registrar of the University of Port Harcourt and the Rivers State Polytechnic.
“Second, I came to understand that people feel Nigerian football stories are all about telling or giving out the results of matches played.
“So, when people hear that I wrote a football book, they expected it to be all about football results or what happened on the pitch but this is much more that than.”
Acheru insists that his book is more about a journey than the actual football itself and it was borne out of a desire to share a story as has never been told before.
“The book is an adventure. In the book you will find love, horror, romance, and comedy stories, as well as other matters that surround Nigerian football,” Acheru said.
