  2. Good evening mr Muhammed please and interested of This Essay you are talking about but how can I write here and post or should send it to you. Iris there some I will come for this Essay writing competition please let me know about it. Thank you.

  3. Please, does the essay support an opposing view against the use of force as a tool for conquering terrorism or does it just restrict us to writing an argument in support of the use of force?

  4. @dayo, No the contest is strictly open for students of the university of Ilorin alone.

    If you have friends studying at Ilorin, you can inform them to enter for the contest.


  5. @Cranium, yes it supports an opposing view. All that is required is for you to explain what you think is the most appropriate.

    Thus writing an opposing view is also appropriate in as much as it relates to the topic discussed.
