Anotherresearch was conducted by Daniel, Esoname, Chima, Udoako (2017) in Afe BabalolaUniversity in Nigeria that had parallel outcomes to the previous researchdiscussed. The researchers used questionnaires in order to back 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 choseto read in order to develop their psyche and to learn the English language inits written and spoken form. Students were seen to mostly read their own notesand university related textbooks.
In addition to that, the findings showed thatother elements such social media websites are what make people not want to readfor pleasure or want to read in general. The findings in this research throughthe questionnaires mark clear that there is a connection between reading habitsand academic performance and it’s a significant link between the two.
