By: Ade Adeleke

Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has called on Nigerian authors to always project the cultural heritage of the country in writing their books.

Governor Akeredolu spoke in Ibadan, Oyo State, at the Public Presentation of a book written by Dr. Wale Okediran.

The book is titled: Tales of a Troubadour.

Speaking on the occasion, the governor hailed the contributions of those he described ‘masters in literature” for shaping the minds of the people and projecting the culture and traditions of the land.

Akeredolu charged Nigerians to imbibe a good reading culture in order to get themselves acquainted with books that will enrich their knowledge in every facet of life.

In his Speech, titled “OKEDI: IN PRAISE OF VERSATILITY AND BRILLIANCE “, Governor Akeredolu described Okediran as a fecund, multi-talented, writer, physician, sportsman, politician and literary activist.

He said Okediran represents the golden era when aspirations for development in the country were anchored on a utilitarian philosophy.
