NATO military committee chair visits Morocco, meets defence chief, others

The Minister of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy, Hannatu Musawa, has commended the contributions of hardworking creatives across the nation to the growth of the entertainment industry.

The minister gave the commendation in a statement through her media aide, Nneka Anibeze, to commemorate the 2024 Workers’ Day.

Ms Musawa noted that through their contributions, the creative industry had been able to provide jobs, encourage tourism and boost revenue for local businesses.

“Today, I join millions of creatives across the nation to commemorate 2024 Workers’ Day. In celebrating this important day, we recognise and honour your invaluable contributions to our workforce and the economy. We toast to the artists of labour, painting their masterpieces with determination and passion.

“Labour studies also show that the value added by arts, culture and entertainment to the Nigerian economy is significant. This year’s Workers’ Day is significant as we acknowledge the tireless efforts of artists, culture bearers and creative workers who continue to enrich our cultural heritage with their talents and dedication.

“As we reflect on the significance of this year’s theme, ‘Workers First,’ it is paramount that we appreciate the essential role that these special workers play in bringing diverse entertainment to families and the community and driving prosperity to our economy,” she said.

Ms Musawa reaffirmed the commitment of President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda to create favourable conditions for artists and creative workers generally.

She said this was to ensure the artists receive the recognition and support they rightfully deserve.

“Through continued advocacy and investment, we can foster an environment where our creative workforce can thrive, contribute, and inspire. To all the dedicated creatives who strive for excellence every day, going the extra mile to entertain families, I say thank you for your hard work and commitment. I enjoin everyone to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our workforce and to express gratitude to those who contribute to the vibrancy of our arts, culture, and creative economy,” she said.
