Members of the House Committee on Culture and Tourism led by the chairman, Hon. Ogbeide Ihama denounced a situation where private individuals convert government property for personal use extolling the IGP and Runsewe for securing the permanent site of NCAC located in Abuja.

Hon. Ihama said both men have remained unwavering in their commitment to protecting government properties citing the Art and Crafts Village belonging to NCAC as an example.

According to the members who visited the premises as part of an inspection visit, the NASS was pleased with efforts made so far by Runsewe to refurbish the Art and Crafts village expected to generate thousands of jobs when completed.

The honourable members further harped on the need to secure and maintain such places as the NCAC cultural site which was almost taken over by some self-serving individuals for selfish gains until Runsewe, upon assuming office decided the party was over.

They expressed full support of the federal government as the council seeks to reopen the village for the benefit of Nigerians.
