comment:
"A short but succinct four page overview of the book publishing industry in Nigeria, which has been in steady decline since the 1980s: "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 for the nursery/primary, secondary, and tertiary tiers of education. Unfortunately all that, or most of it, collapsed following the nation's economic downturn of the 1980s. Book famine descended on Nigeria." The author examines various initiatives to improve the state of the book sector to make it meet the needs of the educational system, government decrees regarding indigenous publishing, national book policies (or the lack of it rather at the present time), a national book development council (which has been dormant for years), and other interventions." (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 799)
