The Social Responsibility Of Publishers

Books are our windows to the world. They are a vital part of education in all levels. They introduce learning to students and will greatly influence a student’s attitude towards learning. This being said, publishers in Nigeria have the responsibility of providing the best tools for the students. It goes beyond just getting a book published for profit, it is a call for social consciousness to help uplift the state of the nation’s educational system.

First Veritas and other publishing companies should work hand in hand with the government to meet the demands of new learning modalities. It is only when a concerted effort among the stakeholders is achieved that true progress in education can be attained. Our students are a reflection of the nation’s commitment towards education.
