Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, ( NCAC) Otunba Segun Runsewe has said that this year’s Nafest is designed strategically as a lubricator of renewed synergy by the Council and Lagos state government to reunite Nigerians for greater tomorrow.
He noted that the media have been talking about the need for Nigerians to remain united for the good of all but unfortunately the 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 but we have not been listening. Interestingly, we do not have another country other than Nigeria” he stressed, adding
“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,” Runsewe further explained before the opening ceremony of the festival at mobolaji Johnson Arena, formerly onikan stadium.
