A humanitarian and leading Kogi governorship hopeful, Dr Bolufemi Rotimi has urged Nigerians to continue to use cultural diversity to promote unity and peace in our various communities and the country at large.
Dr. Bolufemi Rotimi said this on Saturday 5th November at the 2022 Kabba Cultural Day celebration.
“There is strength in diversity of culture and if we go our different ways, we will lose that strength in diversity that we have. But, when the strength and uniqueness of our cultural diversity is harnessed together, we would have a better deal for community development, nation building and suitable development.
“When there is dialogue and engagement of cultures, then, there will be better condition for cultural understanding and emancipation for our cognitive thoughts as a people,” he said.
Dr. Bolufemi said that strength could be harnessed by tolerating and living together in peace with one another as good neighbours.
“The strength of a people depends on the ability to interact with other members of the community in a complex multidimensional manner in order to compete favourably with the global environment,” he said.
