We continue to number thirteen selected from Dr. Jerry Agada’s labor of love, Five Hundred Nigerian Poets. This Aboki Publishers volume, shipping from 43 New Bridge (Otukpo) Road in Makurdi, Benue State, sings with diversity. It is a rich tapestry of creative vision.

Abiyu Abdullahi Jibia, our carefully chosen one, unlike most others in this compilation, is listed without academic qualifications. He is listed simply as a poet and a writer. No complaints or aspersions here.
