History is always evergreen stories about great people and events. Linus Justice (The CEO and Founder of Linjust.com) is one of the greatestand most influential bloggers in the whole of West Africa. This is my own assessment. His passion for blogging is second to none.
No wonder Aristotle, the ancient philosopher and the tutor to Alexander the Great maintained in one of his treatise that Excellence is not just an act, but a habit which one must have cultivated over time. This speaks volumes about Linjust.
I have taken time to go through his blog and his zeal for this venture; I have come to the realization that he is a blogger that worth celebrating every passing day. He taught me blogging, and I have been his loyal mentee.
This post is meant to congratulate him and wish him the best as he wins Jumia’s literary contest organized for all the bloggers that attended the just concluded West African Bloggers Conference held in the commercial city of Lagos.
I was reliably informed that many bloggers took part in that intellectual exercise, while our man was one of those that stood tall in the contest.
Our own Linjust was there, and as a professional and passionate blogger, he participated in the contests by one of Nigeria’s online retailer-Jumia. I am reliably informed that Jumia has called and congratulated him. They have also posted it on their social media profile.
Our own Linjust is the second runner-up; Eva Etese of evatese.com is the first runner up, while Jackson Bassey of talkmuzik.com is the winner. I wish to register my heartfelt gratitude to them all, but while pouring huge encomiums on my friend and inspirer-Linjust.
It is important to know that Linjust is an acronym from his name Linus Justice. He is a graduate of Imo State University, Owerri, where he studied Medical laboratory, but his passion for blogging seems to have overtaken his love for medical sciences.
I am happy for him and I join myriads of friends and followers on social media to wish him all the best...
