Love Does not win elections is the title of a book which details the experience of the author, Ayisha Osori when she contested for a seat at the House of Representatives in 2014.
Following the modest success the book has received, she has taken it on the road particularly with students in tertiary institutions. As custodians of our future, students are the key audience for the book. The key message is that being politically active is the only way to widen our democracy, and make it work for our sustainable development, and the young have a huge role to play here.
