Top literary body honours Silva for development of art in Nigeria

Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, His Excellency Chief Timipre Sylva has been awarded the most Literary Supportive Public Servant by the Abuja Writers Forum.

Presenting the Award in Abuja, the Director of the AWF Dr Emman Shehu described Sylva as ‘a noble promoter of the arts whose passion for literature is intense and true’.

Shehu thanked Sylva for attending the February 2020 Guest Writer Session and commended Sylva, who is a poet himself at his free time, to keep up the good work of developing Nigerian literature.
Responding, Sylva thanked the AWF for the recognition and reminisced on his childhood dream of becoming a writer, a dream, Sylva believes, can be possible.

Sylva who has dozens of unpublished collection of poems has sponsored the publication of many books, supported writing residencies and has encouraged many rising talents, especially in the literary sphere.
