Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has hinted that his administration will look into possibilities of reinvigorating rich traditions and culture to attain tourism economic boost in the state.
“The state government will continue to work with stakeholders in this sector so as to tap the inexhaustible economic resources that can be found in the culture and tradition industry,” he stated.
He made the assertion in a speech during the opening of an Arts, Crafts and Food Exhibition, in commemoration of the state golden jubilee, at Gidan Dan Hausa, the state History and Culture Bureau.
The governor noted that apart from being the centre of commerce, Kano is one of the leading states which uphold indigenous culture and tradition.
“So many successes of our cultural troupes at both national and international competitions can bear testimony to this with the most recent one at the Africa Drum Festival where our contingent came first,” he enthused.
Governor Ganduje described the exhibition as a window to showcase the state’s rich cultural heritage including Arts and Crafts, adding “it is also educative in the sense that it will show how our craftsmen make tools such as farm implements, dying, horse regalia, weaving, and different types of traditional food that are highly nutritious.”
