WHO WE ARE
Delta State is endowed with a rich cultural heritage culminating in the existence of a variety of traditional festivals which are celebrated as an annual community affair throughout the various local governments. Almost every village celebrates traditional festivals that bring both indigenes and non-indigenes together. Most festivals take place between March and December every year and they offer occasions for re-uniting family, friends and well wishers from far and near.
We have successfully rehabilitated the Pavilion at the Arts Council, which we met in a very dilapidated condition and lacked patronage from the public. We also took time to go the Anchorage, a tourist location in Delta State, where we did some renovation and now the place is a beauty to behold.
My dream is to take tourism in Delta to a world class standard. One of the ways I intend to go about it is by partnering with the private sector. So far we have received encouraging proposals from various corporate entities regarding the proposed Film Village and we are taking our time to consider their offers. Any moment from now, our plans will come to fruition and Deltans will enjoy the best offerings of its vibrant tourism opportunities and destinations and cultural diversity.
