Delta State University approves citing of committee on Chinese Language and Cultural Centre

Delta State University Abraka has declared its commitment to the promotion of culture, peace and unity as it approved the citing of Chinese Language and Cultural Centre alongside a committee to organise Delta State University annual cultural festival and award to promote peace and unity.

This development followed a formal request made to the university by Huxley Adiniebo Unumadu, who is The Izomo of Umuebu Kingdom and senior special assistant on Culture and Tourism to the Delta State governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa during a visit to the Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Andy Ogochukwu Egwunyenga recently.

In his presentation during the visit, Unumadu disclosed to the VC and his team the reasons for the visit, which according to him: ‘‘This courtesy visit is necessitated by two important objectives, first, it is imperative for us to fervently search for areas where the stage government could partner with this apex university of our state to promote the development of culture and tourism sector of Delta State economy.’’
The partnership, he said could be achieved in many ways, some of which include the sponsorship of annual cultural festival in the university to showcase the diverse cultural heritage of the people; the institution by the university and the state government of peace award to encourage the promotion of peaceful and crisis – free communities and also the publication of academy projects or books written to promote pace, unity or cultural reforms geared towards tourism development. But more importantly, was the request to the VC to consider the citing of a Chinese Language and Cultural Centre in the university, a project, which he said that the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria has committed into his hand to search for an ideal location within the South – South region
