    Mrs Dayo Keshi, the Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) said that children’s competition at the upcoming 2016 National Festival for Arts and Culture (NAFEST) would be award driven.

    Keshi also noted that the event was the oldest national festival with representatives from the 36 states and FCT.

     

    “It provides a formidable platform in the bottom up approach to wealth creation as most of the participants are drawn from the grassroots of each local government in the states.

     

    “It is key in showcasing the economic strength of festivals as it provides a large inflow of participants, tourists filling up hotels, increased transport, thereby  making it a veritable tool in the diversification of our economy.”

    He said that the agency had a better network coverage that the festival needed to promote the nation’s cultural heritage.

     

    Onanuga said that the agency recently launched two different website in a bid to ensure better service delivery to its subscribers and other readers.

     

    He expressed NAN’s readiness to support the NCAC to give Nigerians and the world a befitting festival.
