United States of America, through its consulate in Lagos, has expressed its readiness to partner Osun Government to develop the state’s tourism sector.

US Consular General, Ms Claire Pierangelo, said this on 11th March 2020 when she and her team visited the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) certified Osun Osogbo Groove situated in the heart of the state capital.

Pierangelo, who was conducted round the groove by the Commissioner for Tourism and Culture, Adebisi Obawale, was marvelled by the trends of cultural displays at the groove, ranging from the history of Osogbo as narrated by the Osun Osogbo Groove Curator, Mr Fatai, to the cultural dance and Sango (God of thunder) by the Osun Cultural Troupe.

The commissioner, who disclosed that the visit to the tourist site was part of the itinerary of Pierangelo and her team in the state, noted that the partnership was a positive development that would boost the tourism sector and improve the state’s economy.

The consular general had paid a courtesy call on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on Monday, this week, at the Governor’s Office, where she lauded the state government’s commitment and success in the sector.
