Now, we move to our eleventh selection 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.

At the time of publication, Ben Due was a lecturer at the Department of Theatre Arts, Benue State University, Makurdi. A publisher of the The New Citizen Magazine, he teaches writing and literary criticism.
