Peterson Ojieson


My name is Peterson Ehimare Ojieson, I am a father, husband, and a budding writer, from Esan Central Local Government Area, of Edo State, Nigeria.

I am the author of the book, ‘The Irregular Migrant: A Story of Perils, Triumphs and Karma’’.

The book is a true life story, inspired by my perilous sojourn to Europe as a young man in my twenties, through the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean Seas.

The story, explains the many perils I came upon along the way in the course of my journey, the triumph after almost two years on the road, of finally making it across the Mediterranean, and into Europe, the Karma that came visiting, after I had gotten entangled in the criminal underworld of online scam in a bid to get rich quick.

My story highlights how, as it is with anything illegally acquired, they’d get frittered away because the only shortcut to success remains hard work, honesty and dignity.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing just under 2 months ago.I actually got into writing as a result of an innocent comment i had made on an online forum to a question. The quest for people to know more about the comment i had made, led to calls and promptings for me to go into writing and here we are.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my present book is about how, as a 21 year old from Nigeria-Africa, and from a struggling family, i had taken the initiative to get myself over to Europe and subsequently help my family out from the throes of poverty.However, since i hadn't the resources or wherewithal to actualize my Migration dreams,i decided to make it on foot, through the deadly deserts and seas of Africa.
My book tells about how i made it into Europe finally, after so much misfortunes and perils and how the need for quick money to bail my family out of the shackles of poverty led me into the criminal underworld.
In the book,you'll find the perils,triumphs and karma of my journey.
