One of the cardinal objectives of CBCIU is to “give greater recognition to cultural diversity and to intellectual dialogue including its interreligious component in order to reinforce social cohesion in Nigeria’s pluralistic society and beyond.” South-west Nigeria has well-established Muslim and Christian communities as well as traditional religious culture which continues to be of international interest. Despite this religious diversity, and unlike other parts of the country, the Yoruba-speaking communities of Nigeria have experienced only low levels of religious conflict.
The Centre for Black Culture and International Understanding (CBCIU) is aware of the level of extinction of many aspects of our culture especially the traditional religion.Our Intangible Cultural Heritage is fast disappearing (going into extinction ) and we must take a decisive approach and action to revive out culture.
