African arts expo to hold in Abuja
The African Arts and Craft expo is set to hold at Arts and Craft village in Abuja, Director General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, Olusegun Runsewe has said.
Runsewe stated this over the weekend during a press conference, a statement by his office said.
The expo with the theme “Our Culture: The Untapped Treasure” is scheduled to hold from August 27th to September 17th, with 30 African countries expected to participate.
Runsewe said the council was moving away from the tradition of cut and nail plank pavilion to specialized and collapsible tents for the event.
“We have dislodged miscreants from the village and have taken full ownership and control of it. We now have a police post for security cover,” he said.
