This was revealed during the visit of the Ambassador of Egypt to Nigeria, Mr. Ihab Ahmed, to the Director General of the Nigerian Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Segun Runsewe.
Ambassador Ahmed noted that Nigeria and Egypt share arts and craft with striking similarities, and thus, the need to initiate to collaborate in order to showcase to the world, their rich cultural heritage; diverse, yet similar.
He further said an action plan is in the pipeline to have the Director General and the entire team visit Egypt, adding that the trip will “provide the cultural agency to the enormous opportunities of cultural exchange and collaboration between Egypt and Nigeria.”
There were discussions bordering on creation of the Nigeria-Egypt friendship club, as well as Egypt’s intention to fully participate in the International Arts and Craft (INAC) Expo coming up within the year.
