FG Holds Cultural Roadshow to Showcase Nigeria’s Diversity

Date:

The Federal Ministry of Arts, Culture and Creative Economy, together with relevant stakeholders held a road show in Abuja to showcase the nation’s cultural diversity.

The Director of Entertainment and Creative Services, Mrs Ugochi Nwosu, said this at the 2023 World Culture Day with its theme: “Embracing Cultural Diversity: Building bridges for a Harmonious World’’

The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development is a day set aside to celebrate not only the richness of the world’s cultures, but also the essential role of intercultural dialogue in achieving peace and sustainable development.

Mrs Nwosu said that the ministry marked the 2023 World Culture Day for diversity and development so as to create awareness on the importance of culture to national development.

“We are also creating awareness on the potential of the Nigerian culture and creative economy to nation’s building. Today, we are showcasing some of our elements of our culture, creative economy and economic diversification.

“This sector is a sector that will enhance and develop our economy and create jobs for our teeming population. As you can see, the youths are here and everybody is here to showcase our diversity. We are showcasing the manifestation of our cultural diversity and that is the strength of Nigeria.

“It is also a day to create awareness on the need for cultural dialogue. From culture to dialogue, they bring out the potential of the entire population,’’ she said.

Also, Miss Gold Ugoji of Black Bones Theatre Company stressed the need for Nigerians to welcome cultural diversity and become more united and stronger as a nation, adding that this roadshow is a good avenue to celebrate our culture and heritage as Nation.

Ugoji said, “I’m feeling privileged to be a part of it. Nigeria is a very blessed and rich country. If we can really take advantage of the diversity God has blessed us with, we will be greater than any country in the world. Nigeria is diversified culturally, and we need to embrace that culture to become more united and stronger as a nation.’’

Martha Patrick, a participant, said that the roadshow will help unite Nigerians irrespective of their cultural diversities.

“I feel very excited and happy. I pray that this will go a long way to uniting Nigerians. Culture is very important no matter where you come from, no matter the differences, culture always brings us together.

“My advice to Nigerian youths is that they should take advantage of this culture. We can make so many things from the culture, not just unity and diversity but also we can make good money.

“This can be achieved by taking it out there, and people abroad love our culture so much. So, it is time for our parents, leaders, statesmen, and each and everyone to come together to tell our children and youths more about culture,’’ she said.
