Anambra schools reportedly dedicate a day to Igbo culture, students attend classes in traditional outfit

Nigeria is a country of different tribes with beautiful cultures and sometimes, the advent of western education seems to make all these fade to the background.

However, schools in Anambra state seemed to have taken steps to preserve the Igbo culture and tradition.

A Facebook user identified as Agunze Azuka Onwuka shared photos of students in the state wearing uniforms sewn with the popular local ankara fabric.

The excited man further revealed that according to his findings, it was a government policy for schools to dedicate a day for the promotion of the Igbo culture.

Agunze wrote: "I was informed that this is in line with the government's policy now for schools to dedicate one day for the promotion of Igbo culture/language. Kudos to the governor for the initiative."
