KDSG create Creative Arts Office because of its huge potentials – Aide


Because the administration of Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State places premium on the importance of the creative industry and its potentials of becoming the biggest employer of labour in the world, he made history by creating an office dedicated to the creative arts.
His Special Assistant on Creative Arts, Hajia Halima Idris disclosed this while speaking at the commissioning of the Stone Walls Event and Recreation Arena at Barakallahu, Kaduna on Saturday.
According to Hajia Idris who represented the governor at the function, the need to create the office was as a result of the perceived cultural and religious beliefs attached to the creative industry in the North.
“His Excellency wants to get closer to understand how some aspects of the creative industry works, so that he can bring positive influence to the industry where they are going wrong, he can call them to order,” she explained.
She said the creative industry is not just limited to songs and movies, but encompasses all aspects that involve using the creative mind to create not just works of literary arts, but also has to do with innovative designs and inventions.
“In view of that, he is encouraging all within the state to find something doing to help themselves, since the economic condition prevalent in the country cannot allow the government to meet all their needs.
“He is giving all an opportunity to learn something after which they can fend for themselves and become employers of labour.
“Just as we did in other communities, there are forms available for those interested in acquiring skills in different aspects,” she said.
She commended the CEO of Stone Walls Events and Recreation Arena, Brigadier General Mohammed Kabiru Galadanci (rtd) for contributing to the growth of Kaduna State, while assuring him of government’s support in ensuring the success of his business.
