Obasanjo Calls For Cultural Heritage Revival

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerians to imbibe cultural values and norms so as to promote the nation’s heritage.

Obasanjo regretted that present upbringing was disappointing, as many children do not know enough about their states of origin let alone the country.

“I have understood that history is no longer thought in school, which is unfortunate. Not knowing the history of your country, family or locality is to lose memory and if you lose your memory, you won’t remember what you ate last night. You can see that it is a disaster,” he said.

The former president who spoke in Lagos at the launch of Ethan and Harriet Pals, an educational and social impact organisation, stressed that Nigerians must “go back to make our children know what matters about our country and ourselves so they can be inspired for tomorrow.”

Also speaking, former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, charged educational institutions to promote the country’s culture.
