Ahead of the Association of Nigerian Authors ANA)’ celebration of its 40 years of existence across Ten Nigerian Cities, ANA yesterday received three million naira support from the legal luminary, Barrister Yusuf Ali (SAN), to boost literary awareness campaign in 2021. This marks the nineth year that ANA has taken delivery of similar support from Yusuf Ali. It will be recalled that the crises that rocked ANA after the 2019 Enugu Convention made the Association to lose the Yusuf Ali literary awareness campaign funds last year, 2020. ANA, therefore, wishes to express her gratitude to the generous benefactor for taking his time to diligently follow the issues in ANA until he is satisfied that the Association has put the ugly incident behind and moved ahead towards a future of rapid increase in literary activities.
Beyond its uplifting note this latest development is one out of many positive results so far recorded by the current ANA administration that confirms the diligence of the ANA National Executive Council (NEC) in the pursuit of normalization and upwards repositioning of the association after the Enugu crisis.
Thank you all for your unwavering faith in our EXCO. Better days are here by God’s grace.
