President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the appointment of Wale Okediran as Secretary-General of Pan-African Writers Association (PAWA), saying “the appointment once again attests to the excellence exhibited by Nigerians in almost all areas of human endeavour.”
“Okediran has made name and reputation as a skillful writer and author of many books,’’ he noted.
The president urged the PAWA Secretary-General, who will be domiciled in Ghana for his tenure of office, to continue bearing aloft the flag of Nigeria.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Iseyin-born medical doctor and writer was a former House of Representatives member and President of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA).
Okediran’s appointment followed the death of Prof. Atukwei Okai, the founding Secretary-General of PAWA.
Okai’s death had left the position vacant for about two years until the eventual appointment of Okediran.
