Ahead of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA)’ celebration of its 40 years of existence across Ten Nigerian Cities, ANA recently received three million naira support from the legal luminary, Barrister Yusuf Ali (SAN), to boost literary awareness campaign in 2021.
In a press statement by ANA’S general secretary, Maik Ortserga ‘This marks the eighth 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.’
Ortserga noted that 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.
He thanked ANA members for their unwavering faith in the EXCO, noting that better days are ahead of them , God’s grace.
