Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has called on the Federal Government to adopt Adire as attire for national events and as a cultural symbol in the nation’s foreign missions, to further promote the rich culture of the nation to the outside world.

Already, the Governor said, starting from next term, adire fabric would become official school uniform in all public schools in the State.

“I want to call on all stakeholders in the information, culture and tourism sectors to partner with us in promoting this national heritage. I want to particularly call on our Honourable Minister of Information and Culture to help promote the Adire at the National level. For example, members of the Federal Executive Council and other top government functionaries can adopt the Adire for National events.

“Our Foreign Missions could also adopt the Adire fabric as a cultural symbol that will further project our rich culture to the outside world. The same thing could also be done by our Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports by making the ceremonial dress of our athletes from local fabrics such as our Adire. This will go a long way in promoting the local contents and give expression to President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration’s “produce what we use” and “grow what we eat” policies”, he noted.

Abiodun maintained that the event was to provide a global platform for the marketing and distribution of Adire fabric and it’s entire value-chain to the global markets and serve as a melting-pot for all participants in the entire value chain and provides opportunities for wider coverage of the market for people to reach out to vendors and transact businesses by logging into the Adire Digital Mall.
