 Solutions to life’s challenges are all around us and within our reach (sokoto is a Yoruba word for “trouser”), but we go searching for them in distant places, thereby complicating our lives. An old Yoruba (a tribe in West Africa) adage says, “What you go looking for in Sokoto is in your sokoto.”

Sokoto is a town in northern Nigeria about 760 kilometres from Lagos, the former capital of Nigeria. The Yorubas live in the western part of the country. Hence “going to Sokoto” is like going to the ends of the earth.

In Your Sokoto is a series of books about relationships with the same theme but different stories and characters. At the end of each book, you will discover that answers that seemed so far away lie within your heart or just within reach, and things you thought were really complex are not half as complicated as they seemed.

Enjoy Book One of author Ngozi Omolaiye’s In Your Sokoto series: Beyond the Distant Clouds.
