Permanent Secretary in the Osun State Ministry of Home Affairs, Tourism and Culture, Mrs Olajumoke Bello, has advised Yoruba film producers to always present real culture and tradition of Yorubas in their home videos.
Mrs. Bello made the call when the One Love Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) paid a courtesy visit to her ministry.
She said since film producers, especially in Yoruba, are links between present and future generations, good and proper image of Yoruba culture and tradition was expected of them. The permanent secretary assured that Osun State Government led by Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was ready to partner and support any association and individuals whose aim is to propagate real Yoruba culture and tradition.
Earlier, TAMPAN Governor, Mr Ayo Oladapo, solicited the support of the ministry to move the Yoruba culture forward. He also said the association was ready to partner with the ministry in all its programmes.
Oladapo congratulated Aregbesola on his success at the last governorship election for a second term of office, and promised the association’s unalloyed support for the administration.
Part of the activities at the event was presentation of gifts by the permanent secretary to TAMPAN governor.
Present at the event were directors from the ministry and TAMPAN executives and members from across the state.
