About the Book
Destiny is the life story of a man who defies all obstacles to live out his dream. From the becoming a prisoner of war in the Nigerian Civil War, to finishing his education and starting his life anew in the United States, Benjamin Bassey Owen is a man who refuses to give up, even when the odds seem insurmountable. In the end, does it come down to making the right decision at the right time, or is it destiny?
Perhaps it’s a little bit of both.
