“Reading has been a receding legacy amongst our young people for decades and the process of reorienting youth to once again embrace the reading culture has been an enormous task for the government, educationists, parents and other related bodies. At Quramo, we pride ourselves as frontline bearers of this cause. We are glad to play our part and contribute meaningfully to the learning and reading culture in our beloved country. A reading society is an informed society and with the right information we can empower one another for positive, sustainable economic and socio-political change” Executive Publisher, Gbemi Shasore
