Senate leader seeks investment to boost economy



The Senate Leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, on Saturday, called for the government to diversify into the development of arts, culture and tourism.

He said such a step would turn around the economy and offer strong alternative platform to oil and gas.

The senator representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District spoke in a congratulatory message to the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe, on the occasion of the 2023 Udiroko Festival holding on Sunday (today).

Bamidele described the Udiroko cultural festival as “a symbol of unity and celebration of rich and colourful culture and valuable heritage, which deserves to be accorded national status and recognition”.

The Senate Leader said, “Nigeria has a rich and valuable culture and tradition across over the 250 ethnic nationalities that we have, but they remained largely untapped due to poor investment and right economic focus.

“The time has come for the Federal Government under President Bola Tinubu to initiate a strong relationship with the 36 states of the federation to fully tap these wasting potentials and this can only be achievable through the right investment and partnership with the private sector.”
