The National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) established cultural clubs in schools across the country as part of its catch- them- young initiative. The initiative is aimed at inculcating values, identity and educate the society on Nigerian culture.
The establishment of the clubs will further enlighten the younger generation about Nigerian heritage and foster a sense of cultural pride among the people.
The programme also aims at fostering a sense of cultural identity, pride and awareness in our children; promote cultural education and scholarship among the students; encourage the appreciation and use of Nigerian languages, dresses, cuisine and music.
It also gives the students a platform to discover their culture and creative arts, talents and help them imbibe the culture of peaceful co-existence and unity among themselves, irrespective of tribe and religion.
