THE Ekiti State Standing Cultural Troupe has been described as a pan-Nigeria cultural team which employs traditional music and dance to add value to Nigeria’s image home and abroad.
The Nigeria Ambassador to Hungary, Dr Eniola Ajayi disclosed this while bidding the Ekiti State Standing Cultural Troupe goodbye at the Nigerian House, Budapest.
She revealed “I must confess that you are fantastic. You made Nigeria proud. You have shored up the image of Nigeria in Europe and also showcased to the world that Nigeria is not only the land of good people but of wonderful culture and songs.”
She said that the Nigeria Embassy in Hungary invited the Ekiti State Standing Cultural Troupe for the celebration of the 59th Independence Day of Nigeria based on its performance pedigree and “I am happy that you did not only lived up to expectation but performed awesomely well beyond our expectation”.
Ambassador Ajayi pointed out that the cultural troupe dazzled the foreign diplomats and guests with the Unity Dance, which showcased the import of collective responsibility, harmonious cohabitation, ethnic reinforcement and leveraging on diversity perception at building a strong Nigeria.
