Are you a Nigerian?


Are you passionate & enthusiastic about a greater and better Nigeria?


Do you have an ideal story for Nigeria?

An Essay Competition is a very valuable project, as it is very flexible, adaptable and open to expansion, while still being very easy to organise, both in terms of human resources and financial matters.
