The Minister for Tourism, Culture and National Orientation, Chief Edem Duke, has hailed the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) for its programmes, saying they promote the country’s rich cultural heritage.

The Minister, who spoke at the Second NICO Management Retreat in Owerri, Imo State, said programmes, such as the Nigerian Indigenous Language, Promoting Nigerian Dress Culture, the Reading Culture Campaign, Cultural Clubs in Schools, the Annual Round Table on Cultural Orientation (ARTCO), and the Training School are veritable platforms to achieve cultural heritage.
