MANAGING OUR CULTURE AND SECURING OUR FUTURE
Culture is an essential ingredient in nurturing a discipline society, it is the moral value of the society.
The focus of the lecture is for Nigerians to respect their culture and uphold it. Nigeria is home to 7% of total language spoken, without culture no country can have economic, social and political advancement.
Nigerians should by now become the centerpiece of the world carnivals, given our cultural diversity. Historical studies, Cultural studies and Museum studies should be introduced to the elementary and secondary school syllables.
Prof. Awodiya, urges us all not to allow our rich Cultural endowment to be eclipsed by western civilization. After his presentation, himself and invited guest VICTOR UWAIFO gave the audience some cultural display.
