Students urged to learn their Culture
Mr Samuel F. Adjei, Ashanti Regional Director of the Centre for National Culture (CNC), has called on students to learn their culture instead of copying foreign ones blindly.
He said copying of foreign cultures would only make them strangers on their own land.
He was speaking at a schools cultural and drama festival, organized by the CNC in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service (GES) for some selected basic schools in the Kumasi Metropolis on Tuesday, to commemorate the republic day.
The festival, which was sponsored by the Ghana Book Trust, Read Wide Limited and Macmillan was aimed at sharpening the creative faculties of the youth through Ananse stories and drama by the participating schools.
Mr Osei Yaw, a representative of Read wide Limited advised the students to developing their talents by using their creative and imaginative skills.
He appealed to them to cultivate the habit of reading to acquire knowledge and also take the learning of the local languages serious.
