He said his organization was ready to partner with the state Government and the private sector to ensure that VAPP succeeds and to also ensure that as other vices plaguing the society are addressed through creating awareness enlightenment.

Francis explained that his organization is deeply concerned with rising cases of gender-based violence and other vices in the country, hence Jojerah Media House, has concluded plans to organize a poetic contest to raise awareness with a view to addressing them.

He revealed that the contest is aimed at using spoken words to raise issues of gender-based violence, police brutality, child Labour, farmers/herders clash, unemployment, youth involvement in governance, drug abuse, and youth restiveness.

Francis revealed that the grand finale of the contest, tagged Fist of Words, is slated for Monday, August 3, 2020, at the Double Four International events Centre Bauchi and draws participants from Bauchi, Gombe, Plateau, Edo and Katsina States.

He said 21 contestants registered for the contest while only 10 contestants will participate at the finale.

“The Fist of Words is aimed at charting a new course for the Poet / spoken word sector of the larger creative industry,” Francis, said.

“Being that it enables young people to express themselves freely on all subject matters, it can be used as a tool of engagement in finding solutions to salient national issues.

“Spoken word is one of the viable tools of engagement and advocacy on all subject matters. It has the potential of becoming one of the biggest segments of the creative industry in Nigeria as well as a platform for massive youth employment, yet it has been neglected”
