The Oyo state government has disclosed that it will host an ‘Amala’ festival in the state. The festival is aimed at promoting tourism in the state.
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 three-day fiesta would hold from Dec. 15 to Dec. 17 at the Trans Amusement Park, Bodija, Ibadan.
“The Yorabas 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.
