Anotherresearch was conducted by Daniel, Esoname, Chima, Udoako (2017) in Afe BabalolaUniversity in Nigeria that had similar results to the previous researchdiscussed. The researchers used questionnaires to support the findings toinvestigate the effects of reading habits on the academic performance ofstudents. Students were found not to give time to reading in their day to daylives. Majority of the students that the survey was performed on only read forthe purpose of fulfilling their examination results. The findings discovered inthe research carried out by Owusu-Acheaw (2014), supported the last pointdiscussed in this research, that most students read only to meet their academicexamination’s results. Along with examination, in this research, students readfor the development of their psyche and to learn the English language in itswritten and spoken form.
Students were seen to mostly read their own notes anduniversity related textbooks. In addition to that, the findings showed thatother elements such social media websites are what discourage students fromtaking reading as a means of enjoyment or to read in general. The findings inthis research through the questionnaires mark clear that there is a connectionbetween reading habits and academic performance and it’s a significant linkbetween the two. It is recommended that institutions should motivate thestudents to read in creative ways in order to broaden the students’ knowledge.
