N5 Million to be won in the Write-The-Future Presidential Manifesto Competition
Coming a day after it unveiled the SING4VOTE competition - a competition in search of the best presidential campaign jingle and music video concept for the Dele Momodu 2011 presidential aspiration, the Dele Momodu Presidential Campaign Organisation has commissioned Write-The-Future - a national competition in search of the best national development manifesto for the people of Nigeria written by a Nigerian.
The well-researched manifesto must have a bias for welfare and people-centered policies touching on all key areas of national development. Submissions must be presented with evidences of research, relevant data, facts and figures, references as well as a very practical outlook. Entries must be written in very readable and straightforward language.
The adjudged winner(s) of the Write-The-Future competition will be awarded a cash prize of N5 million (Five Million Niara) at the end of the competition when all entries have been assessed by a select panel of seasoned Nigerian technocrats, politicians and professionals. Aside from individual authorship of manifesto, joint authorships by a group or team are welcome though the same cash prize of N5 million will be awarded to whichever individual, group or team emerges as winner.
All entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and must reach the Dele Momodu Presidential Campaign Organisation on or before Monday 13th December, 2010.
In a statement issued from the Dele Momodu Presidential Campaign Organisation, National Coordinator of the campaign, Ohimai Godwin Amaize said these two competitions were part of Bashorun Dele Momodu's vision of reaching out to the Nigerian people both young and old in a bid to encourage widespread people participation in the shaping of our nation's future. "The SING4VOTE and Write-The-Future competitions speak volumes about the type of governance the people of Nigeria will experience under a Dele Momodu presidency. Ours will be a people-centered government that speaks to the yearnings and aspirations of the Nigerian people at all levels," he said.
Date of the formal launch of the Write-The-Future Presidential Manifesto Competition will be announced soon.
