This connection, Hon. Dare maintained, will be fully exploited to Foster positive and enduring relationship for the benefit of our youths. To this end, the Ministry will forge a working relationship with Tuface for the forthcoming National Sports Festival, Tagged : Edo 2020, coming up in March 2020 in Edo state.
Furthermore, the Ministry, according to the Minister, will leverage on Tuface’s massive followership on Facebook for impactful youth development initiatives.
In his remarks, Mr Innocent Idibia enthused that he is celebrating his twenty years on stage in African Music; by extension in the entertainment industry. The locations for these shows are Lagos and Abuja.
He said that courtesy demands that he should officially invite the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Hon. Dare to grace the occasion, especially as Youths will be there in their massive number to celebrate with him thereby making it an historic and colourful event.
