The importance of educating the Nigerian child to imbibe the Nigerian culture has once again been brought to the fore.
This was the submission of speakers at the just concluded annual cultural day celebration of Word of Faith Schools, G.R.A, Benin City.
Welcoming parents and other guests to the event, the Chairman of the Planning Committee, Pastor Richard Iyere, spoke on the importance of culture and its role in defining the destiny of a nation.
He said; “culture gives the individual a sense of belonging and unifies a group of people. It enables them to work together without confusion and mutual interference”
Pastor Iyere also attributed the moral decay in society today to the lack of cultural education in schools and even the family unit.
Speaking with Newsdiaryonline, Rev Azuka Ofodum, lamented a situation in the country where foreign cultures and tradition have become “our own” standard for living.
