It was another day of book reading when Federal University Oye Ekiti recently played host to the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), Ekiti State chapter on February 16, 2017 at the university auditorium. The Association inaugurated its first Ekiti chapter of ANA Executive Council members. The event was in honor of the former National President of ANA, Dr. Wale Okediran, who also served as the guest writer and reader for the occasion.

Dr. Okediran, a multiple award winning author, is also the founder of the Ebedi International Writers Residency and has so many books to his name, with some of his latest books, ‘’Tenants of the House’’ and keepers of the Tribe’’ emerging as co-winner of the 2012 Wole Soyinka African Literature Prize. During the course of his book reading, he urged all who were interested in the art of writing to write primarily to communicate and solve a need instead of just aspiring to win awards.

Former Executive Governor, Engr. Segun Oni, who was a dignitary at the event commended the guest writer’s works and affirmed that the greatest of all gifts God can bestow upon any man is the gift of creativity. He equally promised using his good office to evolve a viable writing workshop centre that students and other literary enthusiasts can key into to explore their innate creative writing abilities.

Senator Ayo Arise commended the Vice Chancellor’s frantic efforts towards expanding the carrying capacity of the institution especially in the new academic programmes introduced by his administration. Chief host, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, expressed delight and applauded the Association for choosing FUOYE as her base for the convention. He equally spoke of universities cultivating what he called ‘the university idea’ which is now a total departure of what it used to be.

It was also an occasion of facility tour for the guests as the Vice Chancellor and his team led them around the various facilities and ongoing projects within the campus.

Other members in attendance were; Akogun Tai Oguntayo, State Coordinator, Dr. Olumide Ogunrotimi, State Scribe, Registrar, Mr.D.A. Adeyemo
