The special assistant, Kaduna State Governor on Creative Arts Development, Hajiya Halima Idris has blamed the low level of creativity in the country to over reliance on socialization and formal education, which said often times stifle impulses to be creative.

She however urged Nigerian youths to think outside the box which she said entails a thinking process, which comprehends the implementation of an unusual approach to the logical thinking structure.

Delivering a public lectures on: “The Role of Creativity in Student’s Development” at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria she said creativity has a lot of roles to play in student’s development, and most people discovered their creative potentials while studying.

Mrs Idris said that everyone have a role to play on this earth that is why we are here. ‘’your parents sent you to school with the hope that after school, you will be able to fulfill some certain responsibilities, either in their lives, your life or for the betterment of your society.’’

She said, according to Tom and David Kelly “Most people are born creative. As children, we revel in imaginary play, ask outlandish questions, draw blobs and call them dinosaurs. But over time, because of socialization and formal education, a lot of us start to stifle those impulses.”
