Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has promised to promote the state’s culture within and outside the country.
The governor gave the assurance when he paid a visit to the Headquarters of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Lafia, while inspecting rehearsal hall of the award winning Isa Kungar Performing Cultural Troupes, where he expressed concern over the dilapidated structure in which they train.
Abdullahi Sule was in company of the Secretary to State Government, Barr. Aliyu Ubandoma, and was received by Commissioner of Information, Culture and Tourism, Dogo Shama, at the ministry premises.
According to the governor, “When I stepped into this hall, my eyes went straight to the ceiling, which has almost collapsed; hence, there is the need for total renovation, and the floor also needed to be tiled to encourage you to do more.”
He assured that he will invite experts to take the inventory of all the affected places with a view to commencing work immediately.
Speaking earlier, the commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Dogo Shama, appealed to the governor to assist them with all the necessary tools that will enhance the performance of the group.
He informed that the troupes had made the state proud on so many occasions by winning laurels both nationally and internationally.
