Read Nigeria Project, a nationwide chain of reading events administered by Adwinsa Publications (Gh) Ltd has set aside Saturday 20th day of August, 2022 to host two Osun-based writers, Victor Damilola Garuba and Femi Adesina in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State.

A statement issued by the Coordinator  and Secretary of the club, Grace Godwin and Ahmed Aishat said the last phase of the sensitization reading would take place at No 20, Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ibuaje Micro  Finance Bank Building, Pepsi Cola, Area Osogbo, Osun State by 12PM prompt.

Read Nigeria Project is a project devoted for readers and lovers of books across Nigeria to celebrate and honour some selected important personalities who have contributed meaningfully to the learning and reading culture of the country.

The project also hopes to promote book reading through different events like book bee, quiz contests and other mediums across the country irrespective of tribe, color, sect, age, religion and gender.

Adwinsa Publications was established in March of 1977 in Madina, a suburb of Accra, the capital of Ghana in West Africa. The young business at the time began in the CEO’s house. During the late 1980’s Adwinsa went from a small location to Accra Newtown, also in the Capital City. During this time we also embraced “desktop publishing” (which was also an industry in its infancy) as well as commercial offset printing.

The publishing firm is considered experts in Junior and Senior High school syllabus based text books in Ghana. The firm focuses on books for the Basic, secondary and tertiary institutions that have been largely acknowledged locally by students, parents, governments and the international community. As a family-owned company, one of Adwinsa Publications’ strengths is its focus on the family and its desire to see families succeed in education, especially in the long term development of every child in the family.
