Golden Footprints of the Mandarin is a deep exploration of the philosophical depth of Abubakar Gimba to reflect his world views. It is also a celebration of his unique personality and resourcefulness as a person and as a writer.
One may be a writer and be lacking in those sterling qualities that make one a person. A person, in Gimba’s estimation, is a creation of the supreme being, Almighty Allah, who strives consciously to improve the life of his fellow human being. Gimba in the last fifty years has dedicated himself to the service of God and humanity.
And the content of this book (a collection of his interviews granted to newspapers over the years and the glowing tributes paid to him by friends and colleagues) is a testimony of the goodness of this gentleman.
