Chief Executive Officer of the Bookworm Reading reality show has lauded the spirited performances the finalists demonstrated in the just ended competition at the Cedi Hall, University of Ghana.

Rev. Nelson Kofi Poku reiterated that the third edition, like the previous ones, aims to inculcate reading habits among pupils.

As the Seasons progress, he said the readers have become more accurate with their pronunciations and tone of the reading.

He said he left the Legon campus fulfilled after the demonstration of academic prowess by the children, who left the audience in awe with their reading brilliance.

“I am highly elated; the kids made themselves and their parents proud. The level of competition was high, and I am glad the kids and their parents have embraced the concept.

“And like our slogan-read today and lead tomorrow. So we will definitely improve edition after edition,” he said.
