The Oyo state government will play host to a three-day ‘Amala’ festival also known as “Ajodun Oka”, which will hold from December 15 to 17 at the Trans Amusement Park, Bodija, Ibadan.
The festival is aimed at promoting tourism in the state, the government said.
Mr Toye Arulogun, the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism on Tuesday in Ibadan publicly presented the Amala Fiesta Logo and Brand Ambassador.
“The Yorubas are indigenous to South-West Nigeria, and ‘Amala’ is not only indigenous to the Yoruba race but symbolic as the commonality and strong bond of a people.
“Amala is the Oyo State’s foremost delicacy which has become a national pride with international presence and worldwide acceptance,” he said.
Arulogun disclosed that the ministry is collaborating with Tourist Care Hospitality Association of Nigeria (TCHAN), Ministry of Local Government, Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) Oyo State Chapter and Canteen Owners Association of Nigeria.
