Dr. Dare Ajiboye speaks on Book Publishing in Nigeria

Nigeria has a vibrant book publishing industry, with perhaps the largest number of publishing houses in any African country.
At one stage, prospects for the book industry in Nigeria appeared rosy. The Federal Government established paper and pulp making industries, and an elaborate plan was drawn up for achieving self- sufficiency in the production of books, but unfortunately all that collapsed following the nation’s economic downturn of the 1980s.

And book famine descended on Nigeria.
