Commendation to the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor and Senate of the Igbinedion University, Okada, for inaugurating Centre for Edo Studies:
The Interim Management Committee of Edo Forum of Patriots acknowledge with deep gratitude the establishment of a dedicated academic unit for the pursuit of research and teaching of Edo Language, history, relics and impacts of Edo culture generally on global civilization. This gesture (letter of appreciation) became expedient because of ourcommitment towards salvaging our language and cultural significance from the ravaging western imperialism.
We respectfully appeal to well-meaning corporate bodies and public institutions to emulate this noble initiative, by supporting IUO's prolific vision, or floating complimentary programs of this nature. The need to have this unique intellectual arm in our 'Citadel of learning' as many as possible cannot be overemphasized, even as the scourge of cultural imperialism is prevalent in our homes and body language of expressions in the public. It is that bad that most of us are ashamed of our native names, and indisposed to naming our children our cultural identities, which are by themselves reflections of unique existentialism.
In the coming days, a high powered exploratory panel will be constituted to expand the scope of networking between IUO, and other related corporate bodies, with a view to fast-racking the objectives for the concerned public. We also wish to place on record a commitment on behalf of EFP to partner the IUO in this regard.
Congratulations. Please accept the assurances of our esteemed regards.
