Owe - Yoruba by ProverbsIn a statement signed by CIAPS Administrator and Events Coordinator Wunmi Adegunwa and confirmed by the CIAPS Press Director, Mara Brera, the unveiling event and the entire production of the book is being managed by other CIAPS Faculty and Graduands of Media and Journalism, Business Development, Event Management and Education.

Brera further explained that this is an exciting and needed project as it combines the need for the country to groom and appreciate a new generation of trained, exposed and passionate professionals capable of using what we have in Nigeria to produce what can be exported to the rest of the world.

Commenting on the book Dr Cristiano D’orsi noted that this book which was first published in 2003 is part of the result of intense epistemological research in cultural anthropology that started at the Universities of Perugia and Lecce. In the book, Anthony Kila, in a very original and refreshing way uses Yorùbá proverbs to give us a flavour of a complex and imposing culture. D’orsi observed that while  very committed to African culture and values, Kila, the scholar is also keen on demystification.
