Another the research carried out by Owusu-Acheaw (2014),

Another
research was conducted by Daniel, Esoname, Chima, Udoako (2017) in Afe Babalola
University in Nigeria that had similar results to the previous research
discussed. The researchers used questionnaires to support the findings to
investigate the effects of reading habits on the academic performance of
students. Students were found not to give time to reading in their day to day
lives. Majority of the students that the survey was performed on only read for
the purpose of fulfilling their examination results. The findings discovered in
the research carried out by Owusu-Acheaw (2014), supported the last point
discussed in this research, that most students read only to meet their academic
examination’s results. Along with examination, in this research, students read
for the development of their psyche and to learn the English language in its
written and spoken form. Students were seen to mostly read their own notes and
university related textbooks. In addition to that, the findings showed that
other elements such social media websites are what discourage students from
taking reading as a means of enjoyment or to read in general. The findings in
this research through the questionnaires mark clear that there is a connection
between reading habits and academic performance and it’s a significant link
between the two. It is recommended that institutions should motivate the
students to read in creative ways in order to broaden the students’ knowledge.
