Some Ghanaian art exhibitors at the ongoing Lagos trade fair on Saturday said they were interested in training Nigerians on Ghanaian arts.
They told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the fair ground in Lagos that they were ready to put Nigerians through on Ghanaian peculiar forms of art.
Mrs Celestina Bonsu, the Managing Director of God’s Wisdom Artifacts, said that she was not only at the trade fair to make sales, but to educate Nigerians about the cultures in Ghana.
” My works depict every thing about Ghanaian culture, tradition and belief systems.
”Nigerians will get to know about my country’s culture, occupation, beliefs and traditions by mere going through my works,” Bonsu said.
Mr Benson Lawrence, another Ghanaian exhibitor at the fair, said he was opportuned to train one Nigerian last year during the fair, but would want more to indicate interest this year.
He said that Nigerian arts and crafts were unique and neat, adding that he admired them quite a lot.
” I trained just one Nigerian briefly last year, I believe this year will be a better one.
” I admire Nigerian crafts because of the neatness and uniqueness,” Lawrence said.
Mrs Amamatu Otoo, who exhibited some “ankara” bags and jewelries, said though Nigerians were good at what she was doing, she would want more people to learn designs peculiar to her.
” This is the third time coming to the fair, I have never trained any Nigerian, but I make huge sales.
” I wouldn’t mind if they can indicate interest because that would also boost sales for me.”(NAN)
