Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Isaac Adewole, has tasked Nigerians to revitalise and preserve the black cultural for posterity.

Adewole stated this when the Director General of the Centre for Black and African Arts Civilisation (CBAAC), Federal Ministry of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation, Sir. Ferdinand Anikwe, paid a courtesy call on him in his office last week.

The VC, who was represented by his Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Professor Emilolorun Aiyelari, noted that most of our cultural norms and values were gradually eroding.

He lamented that 'home videos being watched today do not project our true image.'

Adewole assured the institution was willing to partner with CBAAC to achieve its mandate

Anikwe noted that the centre took off from the University of Ibadan, having signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the institution since 2007.

He frowned at the negative reports about the nation by the media, stating 'fraud is everywhere. If not, it would not have been in the English man's dictionary.'
