The State of Osun Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon. Sunday Akere has said that the State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola is willing to identify with individuals and organisations that could aid the state’s developmental drive.
The Commissioner made this assertion when representatives of the Brand Journalists Association of Nigeria, BJAN paid courtesy visit to the Commission to intimate him of the decision by the association to hold its 2014 conference in the state.
BJAN led by its National Chairman, Goddie Ofose, said the state was picked as a result of the giant stride the state has recorded in the area of tourism. The topic for the conference, which will hold between November 20 and 23 is ‘Tourism marketing as catalyst for economic development’.
According to Mr Ofose, “BJAN members have taken pain to follow up the activities of the State of Osun in the area of Tourism, particularly the way the annual Osun Osogbo cultural fiesta has suddenly turned to international festival.
