Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has stressed the importance of arts in promoting Nigeria’s togetherness.
The Minister stated this in Abuja on Monday at the opening ceremony of the Historical Exhibition, one of the events being organized for the celebration of Nigeria’s Diamond Jubilee.
Speaking on the theme of the 60th Independence Anniversary, ‘Together’, Mr. Mohammed said art functions as a medium of
interpreting society, its characteristics, and the way of life of its people.
He added that the enthusiasm and the superficialities constitute a constant appeal that promotes unity in diversity.
