Oyo State Chapter of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA) has inaugurated a new leadership to pilot its affairs for the next two years.
Biola Saka Layonu, the association’s immediate past chairman, who was returned for another term in an election held yesterday will head the seven-man executive.
A media consultant, Layonu, had his mandate renewed with 16 votes to the two garnered by Saka Olaide, a chartered marketer and management professional. The election was part of the programme of activities marking the writers’ guild biennial convention.
A mix of new and old officers in the previous exco will serve with him.
Fresh on board as Vice Chairman and Secretary are Rufus Kehinde, both Chief Lecturers at the Federal College of Education (Special), Oyo, and Alaba Bridget Oluwafunmilola (Assistant Secretary). Others who retained their former posts are Busayo Fakunle, (Publicity Secretary); Akinwande Funmilayo (Financial Secretary) and Adeogun Olasunbo (Treasurer).
