Reviews About The Book:
"A well researched, brilliantly written and inspiring story. "
- Nigerian Chronicle

"Stepping Forward with Uti J.D Agba is an autobiography of high order, intended to sustain the reader's interest, remain true to historical evidence, and deliver a message, all at the same time... The tendency of the book to be too rich, too sensitive, and too warmly nostalgic, is offset by the unrelenting accuracy of its language. Goddy Jedy-Agba and Mathias Okoi-Uyouyo have written one of the finest portraits of the politician as a biography that the English language has ever known. "
- The Authority

"Its not a simple story of 'like father,  like son', but a filtered narration of progenies powered by predecessors and ascending to the heights of challenges and endeavour. "
- Professor Kalu Uka

"Stepping Forward with Uti J.D Agba is an autobiography, rich in history, culture and direction. "
- Leadership

The general Public have been invited to come celebrate with the Prince of Otukwang. Jedy- Agba who hails from a royal family had fought his way to lime light.

Taken together, the book, Stepping Forward with Uti J. D. Agba, tells the story of a Nigeri­an journey. The subject’s life tells a great deal about the Nigerian ordeal from the middle decades of the twentieth century to the first two decades of the twenty-first century. The book portrays Jedy Agba (Jnr) as a direct and candid man, often brusque in manner and opinion. He hates circumlocution.

"As political gladiators continue to meet to prepare and strategize ahead of 2019, his name has resurfaced again. People have seen him as the only or one of the few people from the north senatorial district which is rightly supposed to complete the remaining four years based on the zoning formula of the stat. This is because he is seen as having what it takes to effect the much desired change in political orientation."

Jedy’s popularity continues to grow because he is seen as a leader who has shown the courage and commitment needed to transform the political inertia in the state to a more participatory one where not only a few entrenched interests decide on who gets what, when and how.
