The Director-General, Ekiti State Council for Arts and Culture, Ambassador Wale Ojo Lanre has lauded the state cultural troupe for its impressive performance at the just concluded 4th African Drum Festival held in Abeokuta.

Also, the Director General commended the Ekiti state Governor,  Dr Kayode Fayemi for his moral  and logistic support which enabled the Ekiti Standing Cultural Troupe to attend the event

Ambassador Ojo Lanre emphasized that the Ekiti troupe’s electrifying performance did not only  thrilled the audience but cultivated an immeasurable respect and acknowledgement of its preparedness for the festival

The Director General  pointed out that though it was painful that despite the acknowledged spectacular performance of the Ekiti Troupe ,the judges’s result was not in its favour, and that in spite of the daunting challenges , the troupe staged and  displayed talents and skills to the admiration of both local and a foreign tourists who witnessed  the historic event.

He then commended all the  Directors of the council  for their efforts and contributions towards the successful participation at the festival, urging that the troupe and the officials should not allow their morale to be shattered by the outcome of the event.

Rather, he said they should see it as a litmus contest meant  to brace them up  and prepare  to win subsequent competitions ahead as the Ekiti state government would provide necessary material and support needed to enhance its performances and operation.
