We would be surprised and at the same time disappointed to hear a secondary school student say Nigeria became independent in 1958 and Dubar festival is celebrated in western part of Nigeria! Taking a deep look, a question shall arise, “is it the student’s fault”? “Are the teachers to blame”? “Is the problem lying with the government”? In a bid to give an answer to this rethorical questions, OldNaija sprang up, fully pledging to tackle the ignorance of our history and culture prevailing in our society.
