Bello Madaki Beli, the Head of Department, Mass Communication, Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi, has called on students in the institution to demonstrate mutual love and cultural tolerance to promote peace and unity among them.
Mr Beli made the call yesterday in an event organised by the Mass Communication Students’ Association (MACOSA), as part of the activities marking the ongoing 2022 MACOSA week celebration, held in the Polytechnic Campus, Bauchi.
The event is an annual departmental week-long cultural display in the institution where various tribes lay out their cultural heritage, including dancing and other exciting cultural performances.
According to Beli, the spirit of the gathering was to preach love, unity and oneness despite the cultural and religious diversity among the students.
He urged them to appreciate the cultural differences that exist among them, and understand the uniqueness of every tribe and culture in Nigeria.
The Hausa/Fulani, Igbo, Yoruba, Sayawa, were some of the groups that exhibited exciting performances at the occasion.
The annual MACOSA week usually ends up with a series of academic and cultural programs including the selection of Mr/Miss MACOSA, Musical performance, dance performance, Talent show, fastest finger, and awards presentation, among others.
