The State Government of Osun is committed to the development of culture and tourism in the state.
The present government under the able leadership of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has contributed immensely to the preservation and development of the state culture and tourism potentials through various development projects and continued moral and financial supports to the celebration of festivals in the state.
The special adviser to the governor on culture and tourism, Mrs Taiwo Oluga, said this in Osogbo at the opening ceremony of the National conference, jointly organized by the National Institute for hospitality and tourism (NIHOTOUR), Osogbo campus and the Office of culture and tourism, State of Osun.
Mrs Oluga said that besides students from other parts of the country that had graduated from the institute, quite a number of staff of the office of Culture and Tourism in the state had equally been trained and graduated in various courses and this has undoubtedly improved their service delivery.
She then appealed to the National Institute for Hospitality and Tourism, Abuja for the completion of the permanent site of the Institute.
