Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha and the wife of the first military head to state, Victoria Aguiyi-ironsi, are scheduled to speak at the 2018 Songs of Nigeria Festival (SONIFES).

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, 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.”

The event, set to take place on May 24, 2018 is themed ‘Harnessing the Beauty of our Diverty.’

Akamadu stressed that Nigerians should look beyond ethnicity and foster the growth of a common nation.

According to him:

“With SONOFES, 2018 we aspire to sensitise 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.

“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.”
