The Chairman of the organising committee, Mr. Michael Afenfia, also remarks that the essay competition will bring 100 students, 80 students from public schools and 20 from private, to compete for the coveted prize.

Mr. Michael said: “The winner will be celebrated and rewarded openly, because we want to reverse the horrendous poetry that celebrates cultists and criminals above those who are studious and focused on changing the perception of this state.”

The Director of the Foundation, Chief Alphonsus Iworiso, disclosed to newsmen in Yenagoa, capital city of Bayelsa state that the aim of the essay competition was to “discover and unleash untapped geniuses from the creeks and farmlands of Bayelsa State on the world.”
