The Director General of National Council for Arts and Culture, Otunba Segun Runsewe, said the ongoing Eko NAFEST has birthed a new force of unity in Nigeria
He noted that the 29 contingents that came to Lagos State for the National Festival of Arts & Culture, NAFEST is philosophical of a new thing happening in Nigeria as the nation is poised to realise it’s potential of greatness and unity in diversity
Runsewe said this year’s NAFEST, is designed strategically as a lubricator of renewed synergy by the Council and Lagos State Government for the special purpose of reuniting Nigerians for greater tomorrow.
The cultural ambassador said the media have been talking about the need for Nigerians to remain united for the good of all, but unfortunately no one seems to heed the advice.
“For a long time we have been discussing what divides us as a people, but the Nigerian media have been stressing the need for us to unite and celebrate what binds us together. Unfortunately, we have not been listening and acting upon these patriotic messages of unity. Interestingly, we do not have another country other than Nigeria.
“So this year’s NAFEST is to open up a new synergy to unite Nigeria. We must not allow other people to tell our stories for us,” the DG stressed.Follow us on social media
