VC bemoans waning reading culture
Vice Chancellor of Kwara State University, Professor Abdulrasheed Na'allah, has lamented the waning reading culture among Nigerians especially students.
He admonished students to cultivate the habits of reading any book and strive to understand and digest the content properly.
Na'Allah gave the advice during the Commissioning Ceremony of refurbished Library of the Kwara State College of Education Model Secondary School Ilorin donated by two Ilorin-based firms, Plat Technologies Limited and Iqra Books, as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Na-Allah said even in the age of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), books are still central and fundamental to self and community development.
The Provost of the Kwara State College of Education, Dr. I.S. Opobiyi, thanked the donors for the gesture, promising to ensure that the refurbished library is put to good use and maintenance of the facilities given attention.
The refurbishment of the library include repair of windows, the dilapidated ceiling and provision of furniture.
A total of 300 books spanning 102 titles in all subject areas required for the O level curriculum such as literature, social studies, sciences, geography, languages among others were donated.
