A former Dean of the School of Post Graduate Studies, Abia State University, Uturu, (ABSU) Prof. Geoffrey I. Nwaka, has spoken on the need to enlighten the people on the importance of culture and also to resolve cultural conflicts among Africans.

Nwaka, a professor of History, who spoke to some journalists in Owerri, Imo State, said there had been long standing issues on culture that need to be addressed, adding that he would spend quality time to discuss on some of them on November 17, at the Art Novoure Event Centre, Owerri, where he would be speaking at the yearly lecture series of the Centre for Real Estate and Economic Development.

With topic as ‘Assessing Our Heritage For The Future’, the don disclosed that he would stare the wheel on how to use African ideas to develop Africa, regretting that such efforts in the past had been hampered by the attitudes of the people towards development.

He said: ‘How can we indigenise modernity? How can we promote our economy? My thought will be how to resolve the conflict between tradition and modernity.”
