AN Esan Chief, Christopher Abumere has warned of the dire consequences that await Nigerian society when her culture was finally eroded.

Chief Abumere expressed the fears when he was recently conferred with chieftaincy title of the Uso of Opoji by the Onogie of Opoji, HRH Zaiki Ehidiamen I.

According to him, the influence of western culture had already done unquantifiable damage to the Nigeria Society, predicting that the situation would get worse when Nigerian culture was finally suppressed.

He blamed current situation where women dress half naked on the so called western civilisation adding that African culture promotes modesty.

Abumere lamented the gradual extinction of Nigerian languages, general ways of life which promote respect for others, elders and engender contentment.

“Corruption is pervasive in Nigeria today because of our dying culture. Africa culture promotes contentment, responsiveness and honesty”.

“Our women today walk the streets half naked because they want to imitate what they watch on TV regarding other climes.

“I agree that some aspect of our culture needed refinement, but not total rejection.

“Let us take the ideas of western culture and add it to ideas of our own culture to make a good society.

Speaking on his chieftaincy title, he said it came to him as a surprise as he never thought his contributions to Opoji development was noticed by his traditional ruler.

He dedicated it to God and promised to do more for the development of Opoji Kingdom.

He equally pledged to contribution his quota to the preservation of the Esan Culture, due to his conviction that the Nigeria society would be worse than “Soddom and Gomorah” when culture is eliminated from the society.
