The Federal Government says it will partner with the private sector in an effort to re-position the rich cultural heritage that abounds in the country.
This was the statement of President Goodluck Jonathan, on Tuesday in Abuja, in an audience with members of the Nigerian Heritage Council, led by the Minister of Tourism and Culture, Mr Edem Duke, in the Presidential Villa.
According to the President, many countries of the world capitalize on their cultural heritage to grow huge enterprises and Nigeria should not be left out.
The President was happy that Nigerians had started tracking and collecting the works of prominent artistes and expressed confidence that Nigerian artistes would soon be among the highly sort after in the world.
The Council, which was established in 2013, was to protect the rich cultural heritage which has been described as the most important endowment any country can have.
