The Welfare Manager of Asa Day worldwide Organization, Princess Ololade Babade has said that one of the ways to have peace and harmony in Nigeria is to use the different cultures available as tools of reviving the economy and for the smooth industrialisation of the country.
Babade said this in a statement issued regarding the upcoming November 21st Asa Day celebration, holding at the blue roof Agidigbin, Lagos, in conjunction with the Lagos State Ministry Of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
She said the organisation has been promoting the Yoruba culture in Canada and the Caribbean, adding that the culture is one of the richest in the world which is equally marketable but sad that governments and corporate bodies have failed to invest in it to boost economy.
She noted that no where in the world that Yoruba cultural heritage has not stood out as unique.
On the upcoming event in Lagos, Babade explained that the two stakeholders’ aim was to bring international outlook to Yoruba heritage, promote Yoruba culture to attract more investors and to serve as an encouragement to the Yoruba people to give more recognition to their cultural heritage.
Also, the festival, she pointed out would help in promoting the establishment of cultural institution in Nigeria, where the youths will be empowered with skills acquisition and knowledge awareness for livelihood.
