Foundation urges unity as it holds arts and culture festival
The Ekiti Foundation, which was recently unveiled at a lavish cocktail event in Lagos, is set to hold the first edition of its International Festival of Arts and Culture tagged ‘Ekiti Xmas Fest’, at the AB Foundation Civic Centre, Ado Ekiti on December 26.
President of the foundation, Prof Anthony Kila disclosed that the objective of the foundation is to foster friendly and productive relationships between business and professionals from the state with others across the globe, adding that this year’s event has been conceived to be a day of linking the world to Ekiti through moments of fun, taste, discovery and encounters.
“It will also be moments and events of reunion for friends and families of Ekiti across the world, “he said.
He noted that professionals and business supporting and participating at the Ekiti Xmas Fest, would be giving away items which include essential items like vouchers for WAEC forms that winners can transfer to anyone of their choice in Nigeria as well as air tickets and hotel vouchers that can be used across the world.
The Coordinator, Mr. Rotimi Olarewaju confirmed that the festival is planned to bring together all sons and daughters of the state to network with one another, adding that the festival will feature book exhibition, arts and craft, musical concerts and fashion show.
On her part, Mrs. Bukola Odutola urged members to dispel the rumours that Ekiti foundation is only for the elites or people who studied abroad, saying it is open to anyone who has tangible business or a clear profession.
