    Well, I’ve been following your blog for some time now. And I’ve been looking out for cipmn 2016 in particular. After observing all the recent topic of the contest for years now, its seems this year’s own is not place bound. I mean, ‘in Nigeria or Nigerian.’ My question is that are we going to write generally or reduce the scope of the essay to Nigeria alone? Thanks
    PS: After writing my essay, I will do well to send it to you at the editing and reviewing stage for dues scrutiny and critique.
