The programme, which will commence this weekend, will focus on storytelling and youth development.
According to the organisers of the week-long activities to celebrate the writer, otherwise called Kongi, storytelling will be treated as a resourceful art form that is an integral part of the socialisation process of an average African personality.
This annual essay competition will focus on the theme of the celebration, 'Justice and Freedom: Essential conditions for humanity.'
The celebration is being jointly promoted by Nigeria-based ZMirage Multimedia Company and US-based GlobalNewHaven.
