Culture Clubs and Society to be Launch in School to Help Young Nigerians



AS part of strategies to curtail the continued alienation of Young Nigerians from their rich cultural heritage, Culture Clubs and societies would be inaugurated in secondary schools across Nigeria.

At the 37th meeting of the Chief Executives of Culture of the Federation (CEC) held recently at the U.K. Bello Theatre Complex, Minna, Niger State, participants argued that the gradual erosion of our cultural values under foreign influences and the imperative of ensuring the transmission of our Culture to future generation through our Young ones could be accomplished with the establishment of these Culture Clubs and societies in all the post-primary schools in the country.

Interestingly, the meeting attracted the participation of representatives of 25 states including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as well as heads of six agencies under Culture and Tourism Ministry.

The states that were present represented at the meeting, especially by the director of the respective State Arts Council were Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Benue, Cross River, Delta, Ebonyi, Ekiti, Enugu, Gombe, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger, Ogun, Ondo, Oyo, Osun, Plateau, Rivers, Yobe and the FCT.

The six parastatals were National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), the convener; National Gallery of Art (NGA); National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO); National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM); National Troupe of Nigeria (NTN); and the Centre for Black African Arts and Civilization (CBAAC). In attendance also was the Director of Culture, Federal Ministry of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation (FMTC&NO).

The meeting was declared open on Wednesday April 25, 2012 by the Chief Servant of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, CON (Talban Minna) who was ably represented by Alhaji Abubakar Garba Mohammed, the Honourable Commissioner for Tourism and Culture, Niger State.

In his speech, the governor highlighted a number of heartwarming policies amongst which is that Niger State is determined to be one of the best three economies in Nigeria by the Year 20:20 with emphasis on promoting peace and national unity which is in tandem with the theme of the meeting, Culture, Peace and Economic Empowerment.

In his opening remarks, Mr. M. M. Maidugu, the Executive Director/CEO National Council for Arts and Culture and chairman of CEC called on his colleagues to focus on using Culture to assist the nation in meeting its current security and socio-economic challenges as well as effectively key into the Transformation Agenda of Mr. President and the nation’s drive at becoming one of the largest 20 economies by the year 2020.

Specifically, the meeting commended and approved the content and early presentation of NAFEST 2012 syllabus by the NCAC which participants agreed was in line with the Federal government’s effort at mitigating peace and creating economic transformation. Earlier, participants were informed that the syllabus was designed essentially to achieve two important objectives: deepening the level of participation of children with a view to positioning them to imbibe the knowledge of their cultural heritage; and using documentation as a tool for promoting and marketing our cultural products for national and international markets.

Subsequently, the meeting approved that the 26th National Festival of Arts and Culture (NAFEST) with the theme Culture, Peace and Economic Empowerment will be hosted by Kwara State from October 13 to 20, 2012. Some of the highlights of the festival which were also approved include Traditional Moonlight Games, Dance Drama (stage and DVD presentation), Arts and Crafts Exhibition (physical and DVD presentation), Childrens’ Essay Writing Competition, Childrens’ Drawing and Painting, Traditional Furnished Apartment and Traditional Wrestling (Intermediate category) (51kg-60kg).

In addition, it was approved that Ogun State should be on stand by for NAFEST 2012 in case of any eventuality.

Approved also, was the arrangements so far put in place towards hosting the 5th edition of the African Arts and Crafts Expo (AFAC) 2012 with the theme “Promoting the Crafts Industries for Economic Transformation” scheduled to hold in FCT, Abuja from June 1 to 14, 2012.

The memo on the need for Data Collation on Nigerian Festivals and Crafts, indigenous to each state, presented by the NCAC was also approved. This is with the aim of marketing our Arts and Culture at states, national and international levels. Therefore, states and the FCT are urged to key into this with the aim of coming up with a publication on a national data-base for this purpose.

On training and retraining of cultural workers for career progression both at the state and federal levels, the CEC stressed the need to initiate a Special Scheme of Service in tandem with other professions in the Federal and State Civil Services.

The CEC noted the efforts of several non-governmental organizations (NGOS) in the promotion of our cultural heritage and urged members to step up collaborative efforts in order to effectively harness the nation’s rich cultural and natural resources for national growth and development.

The state governors and the Minister of FCT were commended for ensuring their states’ participation at all national cultural programmes, which include NAFEST, AFAC Expo etc. However, noted was the continued absence of some states at national events. CEC therefore recommended Advocacy Visits to the governors of these absentee states to led by a high powered Federal Government Delegation.
