Message of Hope for Nigeria

For us at Golden Minds Nigeria, this has not just been any other competition, but a message of hope for our dear country, Nigeria. This message of hope is at the heart of each of the articles that contested for the prize. More than ever before, our hope is fresher and greener, as represented by the painted green and white face above with the inscription: ‘Hope for Nigeria’.

The Write&Win Independence Day Competition is powered and sponsored by Golden Minds Nigeria, a growing youth development and national transformation initiative driven by the golden vision to make Nigeria a golden land.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly
    benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog
    by the way!
