The Chairman, House Committee on Information, Culture and Tourism in Ogun State, Hon. Yusuff Adejojo has advised Nigerians to be proud of their indigenous cultures and patronise locally made goods, as this would engender a much desired economic prosperity and preserve our cultural values.
Hon. Adejojo gave this advice during an interview with pressmen at the ongoing National Festival of Arts and Culture (NAFEST) in Edo State, saying one of the ways to revive the dying culture in Nigeria and build national unity among all the States was to be proud of our culture and tradition.
He appreciated the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun for giving his State the approval to participate at the festival, saying this had opportune the State to showcase its rich cultural heritage, which would in turn influence other States to visit Ogun, the Gateway State and learn more about its cultures.
“The importance of the festival cannot be underestimated in uniting the nation. Therefore, promote and patronise made in Nigeria products and educate others about our diverse cultural values.
“I appreciate Governor Dapo Abiodun for approving the State’s participation at the festival. I am so impressed on the performances, especially the parade and drama that had a standing ovation from the audience and which his Excellency will be very proud of”, Adejojo stated.
The Honourable while appreciating the management team of the State’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism for their efforts and its participants for being a good ambassador of the State, charged them not to relent as the success of Governor Abiodun’s administration was the joint effort of all and sundry in the State.
