President of Nigerian Publishers Association (NPA) Chief Uchenna Anioke has emphasized the importance of books in the advancement of education at all levels. Speaking at the 22nd Nigeria International Book Fair (NIBF) 2023, he advocated for the enactment and implementation of the National Book Policy.
He also underlined the importance of providing high-quality educational resources to raise the standard of education in society.
Anioke said that “the theme for this workshop has been carefully chosen in line with the general theme of the book fair. Truth be told, the educational development of any nation depends on the functionality of its national book policy. A book policy could be described as a national guideline on the provision and effective management of books and other relevant resources geared towards the implementation of education at all levels in Nigeria.
“It is, therefore, a statement of intents and purposes, as well as prescriptions, requirements, and a benchmark for education through the provision of adequate and relevant books and other educational resources.”
Anioke added that although the release of a draft national book policy by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, on the first day of the book fair was praiseworthy, it was necessary to ensure that the draft bill was signed into law, which made the workshop necessary.
