While reviewing the book, Mr Dare Babarinsa, a columnist and publisher, said the book thoroughly summarised Sonaiya’s experience.

He said the book gave insights into what it would take for anybody to run for the highest office in the land.

“Sonaiya is the first, apart from former President Olusegun Obasanjo, to put her experience in politics into writing.

In his remark, the founder of Guaranty Trust Bank, Mr Fola Adeola, congratulated Sonaiya for the bold steps she took in 2015.
Adeola said that her race was not just for the women folk, but for every Nigerian.
“But I have a problem with the title of the book; I did not think it was a one woman’s race. It was a race.

“Sonaiya is a bonafide Nigerian, qualified to run; she decided to run and she ran.
“She did not just run for the ninety million women, she ran on behalf of the so many children in this country, she ran for me and every other person,’’ Adeola said.
