Edo Govt to Re-Brand Culture, Tourism Assets

The Edo State Government is set to rebrand her culture and tourism assets, the Commissioner for Arts, Culture and Diaspora Affairs, Hon. Osazee Osemwengie-Ero, has said.

Osemwengie-Ero said the rebranding project is in line with the vision of the Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, which includes revival, preservation and the exhibition of the rich cultural heritage of Edo people on the world stage for tourism receipts.

The commissioner who disclosed this during a guided tour to historical sites in Unuamen Village in Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State, said the state is richly blessed with a lot of cultural and tourism sites.

"We have a lot of hidden treasures in the state which have not been brought to the knowledge of the world. The Obaseki's administration is doing everything possible to bring these hidden treasures to the world stage."

According to him, "the heritage materials form the identity of the people of any community, they are unique and worth preserving. We have an Oba that promotes our culture and a governor that has the vision to reposition our culture sector, including the traditions and festivals for domestic and international tourism earnings."
