The Kwara Government has expressed its  readiness to partner  with  Yoruba poets under the aegis of   Egbe Akewi Yoruba  in value-reorientation against  social vices.

Alhaji Mahmud Ajeigbe, the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, made this known on Wednesday in Ilorin when he met with the new executive members of the association.

According to Ajeigbe, his ministry’s Directorate of Public Orientation will work out the modalities for the partnership  with the group  to ensure an effective campaign..

The commissioner  also  assured the group of  support  in making the partnership productive.

He, however, advised the poets to strive for due recognition by showcasing their prowess in poetry at every opportunity provided by the government.

Ajeigbe also stressed the importance of  ensuring  synergy among the members of the group,  urging them to work with unity of  purpose.

Earlier, Mr Abdulganiyu Atanda, the Chairman of the group, had said the visit was to explore areas of partnership.

Atanda, who said that the association was yearning for due recognition,  solicited  for government’s patronage  while pleading for  a bus  and its own secretariat.
