She also highlighted the ministry’s significant underfunding and appealed to the Senate Committee for increased allocation in the 2024 budget. This information was relayed in a statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Nneka Ikem.

She said, “The ministry has been grossly underfunded, and we will be unable to achieve anything of significance without the right funding.JAMB Portal

“The potential of this ministry is astronomical if we tap into that so we would like to see what we can do at the legislative level to give the ministry the kind of funding and support that we require to achieve our vision within the roadmap, to be able to achieve the objectives of the Renewed Hope Agenda of Mr. President.

“In line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu, the ministry has committed to an aspirational target of N100bn contribution to the nation’s GDP by 2030 and also to the establishment of major projects, which include the building of a National Theatre and National Museum in Abuja among other projects.”

Earlier,  Musawa emphasised the ministry’s drive to reposition Nigeria through its numerous proposed projects.

She explained the importance and potential of the creative economy and the ministry’s core functions, which include attracting foreign investment, cultural promotion and preservation, amongst others, in line with Section 21 of the 1999 Constitution.

“We have set high key performance indicators for the ministry, and we are ready to hit the aspirational targets which we have set for ourselves.

“This is a new ministry which is also trying to create jobs and in addition, establish an intellectual property framework which will harness the culture and creativity of Nigeria. This, therefore will require adequate financial provision,” Musawa stated.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Art, Culture and the Creative Economy, Senator Mohammed Onawo, applauded the minister for her initiatives to establish a national museum and theatre in Abuja while stating that the budget review was to aid her in discharging her duties efficiently and realising her dreams for the ministry.

“The committee encourages frequent interactions over the course of the year to achieve more synergy and ensure enhanced collaboration with the Senate,” the senator said.
