The National Council for Arts and Culture NCAC has said that with the federal government’s intervention is collaborating with council to explore Nigeria’s tourism potentials for the sole benefit of the country.
To this effect, NCAC will support investments aimed at promoting indigenous cultures across the country.
This was stated by the Director-General of the council, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe in Benin during a press conference on the Ososo Canival scheduled to hold on Dec. 26 in the Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of the state.
Speaking on the relevance of the festival, the DG represented by Edo Zonal director of the agency, Ivie Uwa-Igbinoba noted that the Ososo festival is geared towards being recognised as one of the major national festivals in Nigeria.
To make this a reality, he stressed on the readiness of Federal Government to ensure the festival is accorded a national status.
While commending efforts put in place by organisers of carnival, the DG assured members that the council would participate wholly and in turn serve as a support system to the organisers.
The President of the Ososo Carnival Initiative, Moses Ajayi, also revealed that the theme for the six-day event “Ososo Carnival: Celebrating Unity for Development,” emphasises that for domestic tourism to thrive, there is need for a worldwide promotion of unity in different communities.
In the same vein, Commissioner of Arts, Culture, Tourism and Diaspora Affairs, Osaze Osemwegie-Ero, said the carnival would provide a value-chain of benefits for the state.
