At the inauguration of the Committee held in Government House in Benin City, Edo State capital, Obaseki urged the committee to use the occasion of the event to promote Edo’s rich cultural heritage as a force of unity and progress.

The governor said his administration intends to market the people’s rich culture as there are fewer states in Nigeria that can boast of such quality and diversity of culture.

Obaseki said his administration is committed to hosting the festival in 2018 as expectations are high, noting that the best is expected from the committee.

The Chairman EDOFEST Committee and Commissioner for Arts, Culture, Tourism and Diaspora Affairs, Hon. Osaze Osemwegie-Ero, expressed appreciation to the governor for the confidence in the committee and assured the governor that the Committee will not fail in their responsibility.
