Asholio youths of Moro’a Chiefdom, Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State have resolved to use their cultural heritage to entrench love and unity for peaceful coexistence.
The youths made the resolution in Manchok during the 2019 edition of Native Cocktail, organised to revive and preserve some cultural practices that make the Asholio people unique for posterity.
The convener of the event, Mr Lucky Mamman explained at the event that modernity has disrupted the people’s unity, identity and dignity, replacing virtue with vice, love with hate, and peace with strife.
”It is unfortunate that we are too busy with what seems modern that we seem to lose sight of our tradition as a people.
”It is pitiful that the cultural heritage that bound us together is no longer there.
”What we practice today is a culture that set us against ourselves rather than unite us,” he said.
Similarly, Mr Pius Yashim, a sociologist with Kaduna State University, Kaduna, described the effort as ‘laudable,’ stressing that celebration of cultural heritage would invoke the needed culturally consciousness in the mind of the younger generation.
