The Director General of the National Council for Arts and Culture, NCAC, Otunba Olusegun Rusewe says all is set to inaugurate the NCAC cultural headquarters in Abuja
The 30 feet high edifice which was designed and structured to accommodate the county’s rich cultural heritage and artifacts was meant to serve as a one stop shop for various cultural activities, stage dances and conferences.
In a chat with the Association of Tourism Writers of Nigeria, ANJET in Abuja , Otunba Runsewe said the headquarters was a place every staff could be proud of because the interest of the staff was considered in the planning, including medical section and low budget supermarket for staff shopping at subsidized prices and also an e-library through electronic reading facility.
“”We have a supermarket for staff. if a staff is going home, and don’t have what to cook at home, they could come to the supermarket and pick what they want at a subsidised rate. So you only pay some little money at the end of the month. No profit, but to help the staff. It’s a welfare arrangement,” Otunba Runswe said.
The NCAC boss said the newly acquired building with the e-library has full Internet facility for research and also can connected to over 150 countries for cultural exchange and lifts with a capacity to take 10 people at once.
The Culture house he added has an exhibition hall and offices for all staff in one station and a diplomatic area where every embassy will come and put their flags up.
The culture friendly building and environment, thirty feet high building with icronic designs that speaks and depicts volumes of Nigerian rich cultural heritage will soon be inaugurated in Abuja.
