Speaking during a courtesy call to Media Trust Limited, Kano regional office, the state’s chairman of the association, Isma’il Bala, said the association has embarked on a media tour in the state with a view of seeking support on improving reading culture in the society and to strengthen its relationship with the media.

Bala said the state chapter of the association has initiated campaigns for improved reading culture in primary and secondary schools where sensitization of students on need for improved reading habit is being carried out saying; part of the campaign is also distribution of posters and leaflets on the importance of improved culture in the society.

He further said other activities earmarked for the campaign include organizing inter-schools debates and essay competitions for primary and secondary schools as well as workshops and seminars for secondary schools.

He also commended Media Trust for the support rendered the association over the years saying the association has no doubt that the campaign on improved reading culture will also be given the necessary support by the organization.

The chairman also sought media support on disabusing the minds of readers that books produced by northern creative writers are mostly on love saying, “even though creative writers are aware of the fact that love is an important factor to life, it makes just one of the many themes writers dwell upon. Therefore, people should understand that our literature cuts across all other themes and make good reading materials.”

Also speaking, the Regional Editor, Kano office, Auwalu Umar pledged continuous support for the association and its ongoing campaign on improved reading culture in the society while he commended the initiation.

Umar who was represented by Halima Musa said there is need for the association to do all it could to succeed in the campaign as well as sustain reading culture in the society saying, it is unfortunate that the culture is declining by the day.
