#NAFEST2018: Disheartening News From The Bayelsa State Council For Arts & Culture

A DISHEARTENING NEWS FROM THE BAYELSA STATE COUNCIL FOR ARTS & CULTURE.
 
National Festival of Arts & Culture(NAFEST2018)
 
It is no news that Bayelsa State is being represented in the ongoing National Festival of Arts & Culture (NAFEST2018) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. But, we are sad to report from this handle that they have been paid far below their statutory duty-tour allowances even if the sum of about N27 million naira was approved by the government. 
 
A source who begged to remain anonymous complained bitterly that   she might not be able to represent Bayelsa State wholeheartedly in the future NAFESTs. She further lamented that N84,000 paid to a senior civil servant as duty-tour allowance to represent a state like Bayelsa for seven days is ungodly. 
 
She therefore calls on the State Government to intervene else it may affect its performance in the ongoing National Festival of Arts & Culture(NAFEST2018).
