OSCA WOVEN WORDS COMPETITION – FUNMI AKINTOLA
“Imagination gives birth to things unknown but the writer’s pen turns them into shapes and gives to them living breaths.”
The 2018 OSCA WOVEN WORDS COMPETITION was organized by My Woven Words and it was only for undergraduates of tertiary institutions in Osun State as approved by the ministry of education, Osun state. There were Terms and Conditions for contestants.

TOPIC: The Tenacity of Nigerian Youths in National Development and Leadership Roles.
In the beginning was a world made in order
Now in great tyranny and disorder
A world governed and sustained
In the past, present and future by the white bearded
Now, so much persistency, retentiveness, tenacity
In the bone marrow of our Nigerian youths
Creating a solid and great government
Creating a distinct and unparalleled leadership
Bringing forth national development
For a greater Nigeria.
This country of our great youths, Nigeria
All involved in businesses, making waves
Inventions never imagined nor expected
Youths speaking like men of great intellect
Youths becoming prestigious people over the world
Youths assisting the aged in business and agricultural activities
Youths getting a solid education for their tomorrow.
Leadership done by youths is incomparable to the aged
The country moving in a forward and upward progression
Motivations to the younger ones effectively done
Achieving great things outside the box
The thoughts of our great Nigerian youths
Remember the past
Operate on the present
Project for a bright future.
Our youths soaring higher
The ever powerful and persistent youth
Trying to better every aspect of the country
You strong pillars in this society.
I will live the best life I can live
Youths crying out like a roar of a lion when hungry
Youths achieving remarkable things
Creating world known businesses
Making it to the top of their careers
Earning far more than the aged
Allocating their resources in remarkable things
O, youths of the world
O, youths of Africa
O, youths of Nigeria
We are making it, we are getting there
We can make Nigeria, the giant of the world.
