Initiated in 2016 to stimulate creativity and promote literary excellence, this students-centered initiative, has received the following acclaims:
“The entries reviewed from the 2016 NSPP were of high quality, reflecting a refreshing diversity of themes and styles; so much so that one can conclude that poetry is gradually emerging from being considered by the multitude as a closet art to being regarded as a capable carrier of weighty messages encased in melody.”
– Mallam Denja Abdullahi
President, Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA)
Chair of Judges, NSPP 2016
“This collection of top 100 poems of Nigerian students in 2016, is a master collection recommended to students, tertiary institutions and literary enthusiasts in Nigeria and across the oceans. I therefore enjoin you to read and imagine where we are coming from and the bright colors of tomorrow. With this initiative, poetry will no longer take back stages in literary scheme of things.”
– Eriata Oribhabor
President, Poets in Nigeria (PIN)
“In this collection, creativity has no fixed alignment with a particular field of study as students from various academic disciplines across all undergraduate levels flexibly explore varied themes such as love, corruption, injustice, terrorism, inevitability of death, displacement of cultures, religious bigotry, beauty of nature, longings for childhood, physical and sexual abuse, wars and many others.”
– Kolade Olanrewaju Freedom
