The director-general, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), has re-emphasized the need to replicate Nigeria’s impressive cultural showing in South Africa 2010 at the Russia 2018 World Cup coming up in June.
In a statement issued in Abuja, Otunba Segun Runsewe, reminded Nigerians that despite the fact that the Super Eagles did not win the World Cup in South Africa, the country put up a fantastic performance off the field showcasing her rich cultural and tourism potentials to the world.
He reminisced that one outstanding component adopted by the Nigerian contingent under his leadership then was the Nigerian Village model which was specially crafted and culturally equipped to wow everyone while also leading a successful delegation to the month long event.
He recalled that the Nigerian Village idea was a huge success in terms of providing a platform to showcase Nigeria’s rich art and crafts, dress culture, cuisine and tourism prospects thereby drawing attention to everything positive which the country represents.
Runsewe said there was the need to bring back such glory using Russia 2018 as an opportunity to market Nigeria’s rich and diverse culture, art and craft thereby, attracting global patronage which according to him, will translate to massive Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) for the country even after the fiesta.
He concluded by assuring Nigerians that the NCAC having just initiated a campaign to raise 3 million culture friendly supporters to cheer the Super Eagles, was ready to undertake this responsibility just as he solicited for the support of all Nigerians towards this course.
