The appointment of Dr. Wale Okediran as Secretary-General of Pan-African Writers Association, PAWA, attests to the excellence exhibited by Nigerians in almost all areas of human endeavours, President Muhammadu Buhari has said.
Okediran, a medical doctor-turned-writer, was President, Association of Nigerian Authors, ANA, and former member of the House of Representatives.
The president made the declaration on Friday while congratulating Okediran in a statement signed by his media aide, Mr. Femi Adesina.
He described the appointment of the writer as “round peg in a round hole.”
According to Buhari, Okediran had made name and reputation as a skillful writer and author of many books.
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.
