The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun says the rebranding of the home of notable sons and daughters of the State who have distinguished themselves as legends in their various endeavour was aimed at making them museum of global repute.
Amosun who made this known at the Treasury Board meeting, held at the Oba’s complex, Oke Mosan Abeokuta, said that the legacies of those icons could not be forgotten, assuring that government would rebrand homes of other icons so as to make them attractive tourist sites in the state.
“Look at the on-going rebranding at kuti’s family house, we are going to rebrand about six or seven homes of other great legends such as Baba Ogunde’s house among others in the State,’’ he said.
In his remarks, the Ogun State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Basorun Muyiwa Oladipo appreciated the government for the rebranding initiatives, saying that the efforts of the present administration at promoting cultural value of the State would further project it to the outer world.
He requested for more support especially in the area of provision of coaster bus among others that would enhance the smooth running of the Ministry, assuring that early preparation of 2018 African Drums Festival would enable the state achieve its set goals of attracting more world tourists towards making the State tourist hub of the nation.
