Frontline Legal Practitioners – Wole Olanipekun &Co have finalized plans of partnering with The Duke of Shomolu Productions in staging annual theatrical plays espousing National Unity amongst other values aimed at fostering national cohesion.
In a statement released by Executive Chairman, Duke of Shomolu Productions, Joseph Edgar, he is quoted to have said that the need to continue to push for national consensus using very strong socio-cultural imperatives remains imperative if we are to have a prayer.
It is in this regard that the partnership has been forged to execute some of the most inspiring theatrical productions that would tell stories of strong leadership, passionate engagements, and cultural depth with the hope that these stories will go a long way in inspiring emerging leadership as we seek to rebuild the fabric of our Nation.
Already the partnership will be staging its inaugural play this October at the prestigious Transcorp Hilton in Abuja this October 2022 as part of the National day activities.
Sardauna is written and would be directed by famed playwright Prof. Ahmed Yerima would take an intriguing look at the last moments in the life of iconic Leader and former Premier of Northern Nigeria Ahmadu Bello throwing up his deep love for Nigeria while opening up the trade- cultural traits of Northern Nigeria for better understanding of our youths specifically and Nigerians as a whole.
The National Troupe of Nigeria will be playing a very major role in these Productions with its Artistic Director/CEO Ahmed Mohammed Ahmed serving as a Co-Executive Producer.
Sarduana is expected to attract the distinguished presence of His Excellency President Mohammadu Buhari, His Excellency Prof Yemi Osibajo, Members of the National Assembly, State Governors, and dignitaries pulled from all sectors of the country.
The two-day Fiesta would also have its second showing opened to the public who are not required to pay any gate fees as Wole Olanipekin &Co would be covering all expenses.
Other plays lined up include Ladi Kwali to be directed and written by Nigeria’s first Professor of Dance and current Commissioner for Culture and Arts in Ekiti State – Prof Ojo Bakare.
