Mrs Fayemi assures Nigerians of eventful NAFEST commemoration



Mrs Bisi Fayemi, wife of the Ekiti state Governor, on Sunday assured Nigerians of an eventful National Festival of Arts and Culture (NAFEST) commemoration, taking place from Nov. 14 to Nov. 20.

Fayemi gave the assurance during the command parade, heralding NAFEST 2021 commemoration at the Ekiti state Civic and Convention Centre, Ado-Ekiti.
She appreciated the National Council of Arts and Culture (NCAC) for giving the state the hosting right for the 2021 event.

“I welcome you to Ekiti state, the land of honour and I appreciate NCAC for deeming Ekiti state fit to host the 2021 NAFEST, we are immensely humbled and proud.

“Thank you so much. We promise to do whatever we can within our means to make it a success, though Ekiti state is way down on the ladder of states with resources but in place of this, we have compassion, kindness and integrity.

“So we hope that you will enjoy your stay in Ekiti state and we pray that as you celebrate NAFEST with us, everything will go well and smoothly and please forgive us for whatever hitches you experience during the event.

“Enjoy your stay in Ekiti state; eat plenty of pounded yam; washed them down with palm wine and lots of bush meat,” she said.

It was reported that the festival is featuring different states with various forms of performances – Poems, dance, drama and music, some of which sensitised men to desist from beating their wives.
