A Ghanaian writer based in the United Kingdom, Mr Nicodemus Dodoo, also known as Nicky Dodoo and writing under the pen name Paul de Kanff, has expressed concern about the replacement of general reading with attachment to the social media.


Mr Kanff, who was speaking at the launch of a book he authored in Accra on Saturday, stressed the importance of cultivating the culture of general reading because it improved one’s command over language.


He, therefore, urged Ghanaians, particularly students of primary, secondary schools and colleges, to cultivate the habit of general reading (of books and novels) and called on all stakeholders in education to promote and encourage general reading in all schools and colleges.


The Chairman for the occasion, Mr Vincent Freeman, described the book as a real treasure and recommended it for wide reading.


The 46-page entertaining novel is entitled:’ “Olu Williams: I Must Take This Chance”. It is the second of two novels written by the author. The first is entitled “Drumming and Dancing to Doom”.
