The governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has stated that the incursion of foreign culture and selfishness eroded the cultural value, ethics and heritage of Nigerians, urging that all hands must be on deck to revive the dwindling cultural values of the society.
The Gorvenor said this on Monday while leading members of the State Executive Council from their weekly Executive Council meeting to meet a procession of different cultural groups representing various notable ethnic divisions in Nigeria when they visited the gorvenor’s office to celebrate the 2017 World Culture Day.
According to Senator Ajimobi, “African culture depicts respects for God, Elders, Constituted Authority and good deeds but what we have today is different from what we used to get in the past.
The importation of foreign culture of impunity, culture of greed, selfishness has badly affected our society.”
He added that imported culture which attracted low value to hardwork would always breed laziness and leading to low deliverables to the society, adding that the attitude of the poeple to their work also reflect in their culture.
The cultural procession which started at 10am at the Cultural Centre, Mokola Ibadan went through Mokola towards Total Garden through Agodi-Gate and berthed at the Gorvenors office.
