Lagada- Abayomi advocates preservation of culture as devt tool

A culture and communication expert, Mr. Olanrewaju Lagada-Abayomi, has emphasised the need to preserve the Yoruba Language among 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,” Lagada-Abayomi as the guest speaker said that Nigeria had been living together as a united entity since amalgamation in 1914.

“We believe that being characterised 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.
