Students Urged To Develop Reading Habit

Mr Kwasi Gyan Apenteng, President of Ghana Association of Writers, has urged students to eschew laziness and develop the habit of reading to improve their knowledge and skills in learning.

Mr Apenteng said the Pan-African Writers Association has signed memorandum of understanding with the Ghana Education Service to launch the Ghana Association of Writers Literacy Clubs to encourage students to read and write.

He said this last Friday at the launch of the Ghana Readers Club’s T-Shirt in collaboration with the Ghana Library Authority in Accra.

The event was under the theme: “Reading to Break Barriers”.


Mr Apenteng said reading was a key component in acquiring skills and urged students to cultivate the habit of reading.

He said every creative person came from the environment he lived in and therefore there should be the need for an enabling environment for the up and coming young people to develop keen interest in reading.

Mr Apenteng urged parents to encourage their wards to read and provide them with the requisite platforms to expand their horizon by exhibiting their talents.

Mr Kwesi Pratt, Editor of the Insight Newspaper, said the best way to improve one’s communication skills is to develop the habit of reading.

Mr Pratt said reading provided an individual with the tools of good expression, confidence and helped to probe further for better understanding as well as revealing new ideas.

He urged government to provide libraries across the country in its quest to improve and develop the habit of reading and break the barrier of reading.
