Reading Culture: Fayose's Aide Urges Authors to Explore Social Media
Special Assistant to Ekiti state Governor on Communication and Social Media, Mr Lere Olayinka has urged members of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA) to reflect the new age of social media in their works as a strategy to improve reading culture among the youths.
Olayinka who received the ANA delegate recently in his office in Ado-Ekiti also observed that the only way for authors and writers to revive reading culture among the Nigerian youths, is for them to change the pattern of their writings and accommodate the new trend of social media platforms.
The Special Assistant noted that the younger generation of Nigerians can hardly be separated from the internet and it's many sites, hence, writers and authors should catch in on this and integrate new media into their literary works.
Earlier in his speech, Ekiti State chairman of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), Akogun Tai Oguntayo who led the ANA delegates on a courtesy visit to the BSES canvassed mutual understanding and collaborations between ANA and the broadcasting station.
