A university don in the Department of Theatre Arts and Cultural Studies, Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK) and a visiting lecturer with NICO Training School, Abuja Study Centre, Mr. Daniel Chikada has called for the sustenance of our cultural heritage for future generation.
Chikada, who made this known at a lecture he delivered to the NICO Post Graduate Diploma in Cultural Administration students on Wednesday, 29th April, 2015 at the Institute’s Headquarters in Abuja, asserted that the determination to effectively save and repackage the country’s cultural heritage will go a long way in preserving it from generations to generations.
The lecturer, while giving an overview on Nigerian Peoples and Cultures, said that most of the challenges faced by our progenitors in the colonial era would have been avoided if they were to attain the level of education that is obtainable today.
He therefore stressed that the place of education in the society was paramount and necessary to meet up with the ever-increasing challenges in order to bring about national development, adding that cultural administrators in contemporary times should endeavour to improve on the maintenance of their most treasured artefacts, oral traditions and other aspects of culture for posterity.
