Lagos State Government and the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Olusegun Runsewe have pleaded with media professionals covering the forthcoming national cultural festival being hosted by the State to ensure comprehensive media coverage for the event.
The Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Pharm. (Mrs.) Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf and Otunba Runsewe, who doubles as the Chairman National Festival Committee, made the appeal on behalf of the State and Federal governments during a media tour of the facilities put in place to host contingents from across the country for the event.
The duo also informed the media of the support received from the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in putting the necessary infrastructure in place for the cultural festival and in giving the best of Lagos experience to the delegates from across the country.
Speaking after the media tour, Mrs. Akinbile-Yussuf, restated the position of Governor Sanwo-Olu to use the platform of Eko Nafest 2022 to set a record that will be difficult to beat by any State in the country for the next 10 years, saying that the government’s gesture should be appropriately projected by the media.
