Diaspora Nigerians to storm Eko-NAFEST 2022

As Lagos prepares for the 30th edition of National Festival of Arts and Culture (NAFEST) also known as the Unity Festival, Nigerians in Diaspora, as well as the people of Lagos, have called on Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to seize the opportunity to draw global attention to the infrastructural development in the city of aquatic splendour.

NAFEST transformed into a global cultural tourism brand under Otunba Segun Runsewe, who is Nigeria’s culture chief marketer and Director General, National Council for Art and Culture (NCAC), with the 36 states already confirmed to showcase the best of their indigenous cultural endowments at the event.

Lagosians and Nigerians in Diaspora are excited about Lagos government hosting the authentic Nigeria cultural vehicle in November 2022 and have indicated readiness to invite their friends in the diaspora to Nigeria to witness the event, whilst commending the wife of the Governor Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu for her commitment and support as mama Eko NAFEST.

No doubt, Governor Sanwo-Olu has embarked on several infrastructural renewal projects in Lagos recently, such as flagging off the state rail systems, with intent to connect it seamlessly to the road transportation architecture and Ferry services to the littoral areas such as Epe, Ikorodu, Victoria Island and Badagry. New Theatres and entertainment halls now dot the skylines of the four divisions of the state in preparation to unveil the national cultural tourism Armada in Lagos.

Recently, the state Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf with some stakeholders, embarked on an open assessment of the structures and preparedness of state’s cultural tourism architecture in order to effectively tackle and disengage breaches ahead of the festival.
