Nasarawa State curator wants govt. to provide gallery to display artifacts

Lafia – Mrs Elizabeth Kefas, the Curator, National Museum and Monuments in Nasarawa State, says the major challenge confronting the commission is the lack of a gallery or museum to display its works.

Kefas told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lafia that it was important for the commission to have a gallery or a museum where it could display the state’s cultural heritage for the public.

She said that such a gallery would also help to protect the cultural heritage of different ethnic extractions that abound in the state.

“The diverse ethnic groups in the state have a lot of artifacts which can be displayed.

“I have not started going out to collect objects from these different ethnic groups because I don’t have a store or a gallery to keep them.

“This is why it is important that we have a building that can house these artifacts,’’ she said.

The curator appealed to the state government to assist the commission with a befitting museum where visitors and the public could visit and be informed about the state and its ethnic origins.

“I am still waiting and hoping that the state government will help us with such a property.’’[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]

Kefas also appealed to the indigenes of the state to support the commission with information on items of cultural origins, which they had in their communities.

According to her, Nasarawa State is rich in its cultural heritage, adding that the state can be on the limelight if such are given prominence.

The curator described the traditional rulers as custodians of culture and tradition in the state,

She urged them to intimate the commissioner of information and tourism with heritage and monument sites in their domains that may be unknown to other Nigerians.

“Invite us.

“When you invite us to see those things, we will forward them to our head office, which will now take a decision on what to do about them,’’ she said. (NAN)
