YEAR OF ESTABLISHMENT
A BRIEF HISTORY
The Nigeria Institute of Potential Authors and Public Speakers (NIPAPS) was born out of the idea of a Talent Appreciation Concert (TAC), which was supposed to hold in the year, 2009, in a bid to encourage youths about their talents and also inspire budding talents on all aspects. Unfortunately, the Concert could not hold due to the enormity of what was required for the hosting of the Concert. There was a need to include an Academy to the hosting of the Concert after due consultation with Resource persons as Trainers of participants for the Concert. This resultantly made the Concert so elaborate and more than we could shoulder; thereby making me to hold on with the plan of hosting of the Concert.
Nevertheless, being burdened to really encourage talents, I thought of doing something related to the Writing skill, which is my area of specialization and something I can sacrifice to do for interested youths and so I started what we called “LITERARY SKILL ACQUISITION.” We did this for some months, after which we began a special certified Seminar on it as SCHOOL OF SUCCESS, with the name: Nigeria Institute for Potential Authors and Public Speakers (NIPAPS); it was occasionally organised as a one week programme for the period it lasted. The last one organised was in the year, 2013.
It was after the last School of Success that I began to see the need to establish NIPAPS as a full Institute, where Authors and Public Speakers will be effectively trained. Thus, we had the first set in the year, 2014 and ever then, we have continued to hold it as a six-month intensive training with graduation and the award of certificate.
