Members of the House of Representatives Committee on Tourism and Culture have warned against the sale of the National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos state.
Chairman of the House committee on Culture and Tourism, Mr. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, made this known during an interactive session between his committee and the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, at the National Assembly complex Abuja.
The Edo lawmaker insisted that the position was in the best interest of Nigerians and promised to wade into the crises between the Artistic Director of the monument and his personnel.
Ogbeide-Ihama expressed concern over the neglect of the culture and tourism sector pointing out that investing heavily in the sector could easily provide the enabling environment for skills acquisition and employment opportunities for the teeming population of youths and boost the gross domestic product of the country.
