FG To Collaborate with Qatar To Promote Culture

Yakubu Ahmed, the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Nigeria to the State of Qatar, has urged for cooperation between the two nations to promote Nigerian culture in Qatar.

The call was made by Ambassador Ahmed on Sunday during a courtesy visit to the office of Prof. Khalid Al Sulaiti, general manager and chairman of the Kiahf Committee of the Katara Cultural Foundation.

The Nigerian Principal Representative informed his Qatari host during a tour of the Katara Cultural Village about Nigeria’s rich cultural diversity, which is reflected in traditional celebrations that include carnivals, boat rides, fishing, dances, songs, horseback riding, and masquerades among various ethnic groups.
