Titled "L'Audace d'être différent" or "The Audacity To Be Different," the 511-page book recounts the life of the former administrator, Abakar Ahamat. The book is a framework meant to teach future administrators how to govern. During the launching ceremony at the banquet hall of the Littoral Governor's Office in Douala August 24, the former Governor pointed out that the book which narrates his life is purposed to reveal the untold story of civil service. Published by "Edition ifrikiya," the book is divided into six parts and nineteen chapters with a preface written by Professor Alain Ondoua.
