The vice president of Nigeria Yemi Osinbajo shared a tale about how his passion for poetry died but still appreciated poet writers and calls on Nigerians to appreciate writers.
When I was 10 years old, there was a girl in my class who I was quite certain at the time that I could give my life. So I wrote her a lovely poem over a weekend; I wrote the poem on Friday and finished it on Saturday. And it was, if I may say so myself, a work of sheer genius.
