Soldiers are not poets? Albert Seraphin brilliantly belies this trite assertion. He is the living proof that a soldier, while answering the clarion call, can hold a mighty pen to advocate peace and unity. Sometimes bucolic, often harshly realistic, his pungent words reflect the vibrant vision of a Nigerian citizen whose basic objective is to serve his fatherland. To pay tribute to its past and pave the way for a flourishing future. His forthright voice pleads for awareness and oneness in every situation, whether he depicts the hardships of service, not forgetting to salute the bravery of the soldiers and the bonds between them, or his bleeding pen pleads for safe driving, women rights, and an end to the internecine feuds that tear his country apart. He is on permanent poetic duty. His forceful Clarion Call holds redemptive powers, and certainly calls for attention Brigitte Poirson, Poet, teacher and promoter of African Poetry

He is the last child in a family of five. He's a graduate of Political Science from Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo state and a member of the Lagos chapter of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA). He started writing poetry in December 2010 with his first poem titled, 'HOW TRAUMATIC', inspired by his sister's still birth experience.

As a writer, he gets inspirations from personal experiences, situations around in the society, imaginations, people, songs and stories. He loves nature and creativity; he's a painter, writer, actor and an advocate for social justice and fairness. Albert served as a 2014/2015 Batch B corps member at the Umuahia South Local Government Secretariat, Abia state.
