Share This



The Ogun State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Dr. Oluwatoyin Taiwo has paid homage to the Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, HRM, Oba Dr. Adedotun Gbadebo and solicited his support in the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage in the State and Nigeria at large.

Speaking at the palace in Abeokuta, Taiwo noted that, Royal Fathers, being the custodians of culture, plays major role in reviving lost cultural heritage, expressing displeasure at the present generation’s neglect of inherited culture and adopting foreign lifestyles.

He said the present administration in the State was ready to ensure that the cultural heritage takes its pride of place, as, ‘’we have come to learn how to revive our lost cultural heritage so that we can sail the boat of Ogun State to the promise land”.  
   
Responding, Oba Gbadebo said ‘’Nigeria was blessed with rich cultural heritage, that could boost its economy, if well utilized’’, noting that some countries that were not as blessed as Nigeria, harnessed tourism as their main source of revenue generation.
He urged Dapo Abiodun led administration to look inward and tap into tourism potentials in the State, to boost its economy and make life meaningful for all and sundry, as well as placing Ogun on the world map.
