Alaafin tasks students on promotion of Yoruba culture
Oba Adeyemi who spoke at the “Cultural Day 2015” celebration organized by the Law Students Society (LSS) of the University of Ibadan (UI) as part of its activities marking the 30th ‘Law Week’ of the faculty advised the students to study, practise and promote the rich cultural heritage of Yoruba, urging them not to see Yoruba Language as a vernacular.
The royal father who was the guest of honour at the event said, “foreign nationals have now been coming to Nigeria to study Yoruba Language as a course. This has shown to the whole world that Yoruba as part of African Language is a very rich one. We also have to appreciate it and that is why I implore you youths to propagate this advocacy”.
The Dean of the Faculty of Law of the institution, Professor Adeniyi Olatunbosun said as part of efforts to promote Yoruba culture, students and management staff of the faculty must put on Yoruba attire every Friday.
