The Executive Secretary of SONIFES, Chuks Akamadu, said the 2018 edition was designed primarily to promote Nigeria’s diverse cultural heritage, unity in diversity and peaceful coexistence by means of creative deployment of art forms such as music, drama, dance-drama and a cocktail of other cultural performances.

He said while the SGF Mustapha, would speak on “The Imperative of Harnessing the Beauty of Our Diversity”, Mrs Aguiyi-Ironsi shall preside the event scheduled for May 24 in Abuja.

Akamadu said this year’s event is themed “Harnessing the Beauty of our Diverty” and that Nigerians should look beyond ethnicity and foster united front for national growth.

“We believe that at a time like this, all patriotic Nigerians – individuals, groups, and corporate citizens – have a duty to deploy tools and platforms available to them for the urgent task of national healing, by optimizing the abundant benefits of our diversity.

“With SONOFES, 2018 we aspire to sensitize the public on the need for non-state actors across religious, political and cultural divides to effectively complement Federal Government’s efforts at stabilizing the nation; for it has become obvious that we cannot continue to enforce national unity,” Akamadu said.
