I am a creative wrier and a professionally trained journalist simply addressed as Mr. Blessed, but widely known as Blessed Mudiaga Adjekpagbon.
I am an arts person to the core with a B.Sc degree in Mass Communication, and M.Sc in the same discipline from two different tertiary institutions established in Nigeria.
Teaching is one of my inborn gifts as l have been teaching right from my secondary school days to my tertiary era, and till date. I used to organize tutorials for my classmates who asked for my services from the beginning of time.
I specialize in teaching Literature-in-English, Government, and Christian Religious Studies at both Junior/Senior Secondary and JAMB curriculum of studies level.
I have authored over ten books bordering on the three genres of writing such as prose, poetry and drama. Some of my published academic books are being used to improve the knowledge of both secondary and tertiary students in Nigeria and the global community.
I look forward to having a robust intellectual and academic interface with any group of students within the range aforementioned if my services are needed by your organization.
