On Thursday 22nd June, the department of library and information science in faculty of education imo state university owerri celebrated cultural day in a unique and exciting way.

The event took place at the department of library and information science imo state university owerri, where the students under the aegis of national association of library and information science students (NALISS) explored the broader concepts of igbo belief, values and culture. 

The faculties that were represented were faculty of education, faculty of environmental science, faculty of social science, faculty of business, mechanical and humanities students association.

The NALISS 2016/2017 executives led by Mr. Cosmos nnaji (elder) worked hard towards the successful conduct of the cultural day, and their efforts were duly reciprocated by the student population that came out in huge numbers and participated with a spirit of healthy competition to win prizes and to have fun and frolic. 

The event was a huge success as people turned up in large numbers to tap their feet in unison with the performances of team “nwa jesus” comedy crew organized by NALISS 100L community alongside innovative concepts.

The closing ceremony was no less fascinating and was attended by the honourable director academic planning imo state university, the university librarian, dean faculty of education, HODs, faculty members, registrar of the department, members of imsu traditional council, imsu elijah and others.



The major attraction of the ceremony remained the “akuko – uha bu eziokwu” an Igbo news presentation which brought the audience to its feet as the students cheered and marvelled at the excellence in diction of the presenters (snuzy, tony, prince, and kendra).  A humorous skit by nwa jesus filled the atmosphere with excitement, and was equally complemented by power packed drama from NALISS 300 and 400l community.

The event finally concluded as the student president Mr. Cosmos Nnaji, on behalf of the all the other student convenors took the stage to express their vote of thanks. They thanked the honourable director for gracing the occasion. A special thanks was extended to the dean students affairs Prof. Ezeanyika and course adviser Dr. Basil E. For their vital role in the organisation of the event and for guiding the student convenors with their wisdom at every step.


The presentations were a wonderful opportunity for the students to share with the audience, their understanding about culture and indeed themselves, and in doing so further enhanced their Igbo language skills as observed by Mr. Elijah.



In the end the student convenors thanked each and everyone involved in making NALISS cultural day ’17 such a memorable event, with the words of gratitude still ringing in the students’ ears. The NALISS cultural day 2017 finally ended in all its glory.
