On January 9, 2020, President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev published an article entitled "Abai and Kazakhstan in the XXI century." In his article, the President shared his views on the importance of Abai's words and called on "to love a nation like Abai." Citing Abai's words, "The wise council is gone, the country has taken the whisper," Tokayev's public confidence in the government has waned, so he decided to set up a "public trust council" to discuss and resolve issues.
Sak Kairat Omirbayevich, Dean of the Faculty of Journalism and Political Science, LN Gumilyov ENU:
"Honorary citizens of Alash were the first to take part in the recognition of Abai. Mirzhakyp Dulatovich in his work "Abai" said: "The farther away from Abai's death, the closer we get to his spirit." XX century In the beginning, the Kazakhs who understood and recognized Abai were few and far between, but now in the XXI century. There are thousands of Kazakhs who know the value of Abai. This is the growth of the Kazakhs. But we must not stop there, as the President said in his article, and we must dedicate this year to raising our minds and changing our minds. If we could make a list of all the books that Abai read in order to get to know Abai, we would be one step closer to understanding Abai. "Every house has a dombra, Abai's work, the epic novel" Abai's way ", and if we get closer to Abai, we will get closer to civilization, we will become an intelligent nation," he said.
