We received over 300 eligible entries from both Nigeria and Cameroon. We encountered a huge number of high-quality writing but regrettably, we had limited slots. We privileged writers with promise and potential over those already established. We use the medium to thank everyone who submitted entries. We wish you good luck in your writing.

Congratulations to the participants.
