Let’s think culture…
I am a culture
You’re a culture
We’re a culture

Let’s tell the story… In the world over, culture has become one of the major elements used in influencing tourism and international relations. This is because people’s quest to having practical experience of other’s ways of life has increased in different societies across the globe. In this regard, Nigeria and other African communities witness an inflow of visitors from America, Europe and Asia on weekly bases due to the high presence of fundamental cultural endowments, artifacts and aesthesis. This automatically has marked Nigeria as tourism destination in the global spare.

As Nigeria continue to tap from cultural property in promoting tourism, there is need to embrace the unconventional contemporary paradigm shift from the use of culture is peace building processes and conflict resolution by young practitioners, academics and experts. The reliance on culture through street theatre, poetry, pageantries, spoke and written words for the oppressed etc; brings about Democratic forms of interaction in which when properly harnessed could create resistance to oppression yet peacefully co-existing.
Typical example was the evolution of the Olympic Truce Peace Champaign which brought people from like conflict nations to showcase their cultural endowments before the commencement of the 2012 London Olympic Games. Secondly, Mountain Cinema Nigeria (MCN) has been using street carnival, cultural fiesta and beauty pageantry (Face of Culture) to promote peace between other States. Thirdly, young peace building practitioners have commenced inter-cultural festivals and sport as means of re-engineering peaceful coexistence among communities and states.

Judging from the above, it can be hypothesized the culture is becoming a fundamental elements of Peace building and conflict resolution strategy in the global perspective. Therefore, Cross River State must take advantage of the time opportunities embedded in this annual Obudu new yam festival.
