The Pan African Writers Association (PAWA) has promised to encourage the enactment of strong Legislations in Member African Countries on Copyright Regulations to curb the pervasive incidence of Book piracy in the continent.

This assertion was made by Dr Wale Okediran, the Secretary General (SG) of PAWA when he visited the Director General (DG) of the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), Mr John Ohi Asein in his office in Abuja during the week.

While congratulating the NCC’s DG on the recent passage of the reviewed Copyright Bill by the Nigerian House of Representatives, Dr Okediran believed that similar Copyright Laws across the African continent wil go a long way in the promotion of African Literature.

Okediran further explained that PAWA was ready to partner with NCC and other National Copyright Commissions in Africa in order to achieve this objective.

While thanking Dr Okediran for the visit and commendation , Asein promised to collaborate with PAWA in the promotion of the Book business in Africa.
