Culture Is Relevant To Our Development, Says Yoruba Scholar, Lagada-Abayomi – Naijanewsdirect

  A culture and communication expert, Mr. Olanrewaju Lagada-Abayomi has emphasized the preservation of the Yoruba Language amongst the Nigerian youths, saying that this will ensure unity and cohesion in the country. Addressing students during the Cultural Day Celebration of Igbobi College, Lagos as part of activities marking its 90th Founders Day recently with a presentation entitled; "The Place Of Culture In Unity and Diversity," as Guest Speaker, Lagada-Abayomi said that Nigeria had been living together as a united entity since amalgamation in 1914. "Since 1914 that Nigeria has been together as a nation (amalgamation), we have been enjoying living together peacefully as a family (co-existence), despite the 250 tribes spread across the 36 states in the nation with differences in dressing, food, customs, norms and values. "We believe that being characterized by differences should not pose a disadvantage in any way; instead, it would present opportunities for Nigerians to maximize the diversity as a gift to develop our nation (national development). "Therefore, the idiomatic phrase, “United we Stand, Divided We Fall” is embraced in Nigeria. "But unfortunately, in the recent times, some quarters are instigating a tribe and culture against others to destabilize the nation, where Hausas are against Yoruba, Igbo against Niger Deltans, among others. "Moreso, even the society with common entity is presently experiencing unity derogation. "What is the way forward? In this regard, this paper aims to identify culture as a way and tool to unite and rebuild our respective society and nation, Nigeria, even through our socio-cultural differences. "Therefore, the following issues would be reviewed in the presentation: What is culture? Identities of culture, types of Culture; what is Unity? Examples of Unity; what is diversity? Examples of diversity; what culture can do to make people united? "What culture can do to make people from different background live together in peace (Cultural Diversity)? And tolerance
