The National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), added colour to the 2018 world cup going on now by putting up an Exhibition in Russia.
This novel idea was muted by the visionary and creative Director General of NCAC who led the Council members and other stakeholders to Russia.
As the players are exhibiting their talents and projecting Nigeria’s football prowess in Moscow, so also was the Director General of National Council for Arts and Culture, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe and his team, showcasing a football exhibition with other Nigeria’s arts and cultural prowess to the world.
The source of this information stated that the exhibition which started earlier in the week has witnessed an influx of visitors.
According to the statement, it featured series of past apparels of the Nigerian football teams, historical photographs dating back to 1949 as well as other arts and culture materials from different parts of Nigeria.
It was noted that many football enthusiasts watched the Nigerian vs Iceland match at NCAC Exhibition ground.
According to Otunba Runsewe, “There was an influx of visitors to the Nigerian exhibition ground on Friday which coincidentally was the day Nigeria recorded an emphatic 2-0 win over Iceland to get into contention of crossing the Group D hurdle.”
He advised the players to remain focused for the next matches and expressed strong believe that Nigeria can beat Argentina, even though a draw may be sufficient for us to go to the next round.
Otunba Runsewe has brought a lot of innovations and established much good will for the National Council for Arts and Culture and Nigeria in general, just one year in office.
Nigeria is the only country in Russia doing the exhibition during the 2018 world cup.
