Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has said his administration is ready to promote the rich cultural heritage of the state and restore its values.
The Governor spoke during a courtesy visit to his office by the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) led by its South West zonal head, Mr. James Imohiosen.
The Governor advocated a language school to be run by the institute. He added that if the modus of teaching is simplified, people can pay little money to learn indigenious languages at the Institute.
Earlier, the zonal head of NICO who led the team, Mr. James Imohiosen, said the state is already reaping the gains of the Akeredolu’s administration.
He lamented that the cultural heritage of the people has been eroded due to contact with civilization. He noted that the institute has organized seminars for traditional rulers, being the custodians of culture, on how to restore the lost cultural heritage and identity.
