“Ifa divinity school will enhance the study of Yoruba culture and ancient tradition  of our forefathers. I humbly appeal to our political leaders to get more involved in  projects of this nature,” he declared.

Urging the nation’s political leaders to take a cue from other nations where  conscious efforts are being made to preserve their culture, Adams said: “Our own  case should not be different. We must not lose touch with our roots. We should not  become imitators of other people’s culture while we abandon ours. African culture is  not only very rich but it is what we should treasure and preserve for generations  yet to comee,” he added.
