Essay Competition: Week 7 Winner.

Ladies and gentlemen, our winning essay for week 7 is Thumb Crowning by Mbam Chukwuemeka. From a judge: “Please give this man a beer on me! That was good!! From the first word here, he got my full attention until the last paragraph. His presentation was good, and how he always finds a way to bring in Titi into the conversation tells me he is a very good writer” Congratulations Mbam Chukwuemeka on your first win. Keep writing! Some feedback 1. Lest We Forget In A Hurry by Prince Chime. “He drew me into his world with his introduction (I loved it) and did a good job by bringing to fore Achebe’s stellar contributions to the literary world but could have developed the story better with a personal touch. There is talent here” 2. Our Origin: The Nigerian Divide by Aaron Livingstone. “He made valid points in his presentation, and the layout was good and unambiguous which made it easy to follow his presentation” 3. The gods Of Social Media by Osanyinro Oluwaseun. Good essay but needs to be more engaging and evocative” We received fewer entries this week for a good reason. We focused on #EndSARS. We support the ongoing protests and we call on the government to embark on total reformation of not just the police but our entire security architecture. We wish to thank our sponsors, readers, writers and everyone for their support. Next up will be the topics for week 8.
