The Enina Theatre Festival, organised by the Skills Development Agency (Edojobs) in collaboration with Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub, and with the support of the German and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, marked a significant cultural milestone in the state.

The event, which was facilitated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)-SKYE programme, enjoyed the support of some key partners.

Held from Friday, August 25 to Sunday, August 27, 2023 at Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub, the festival drew its inspiration from the word ‘Enina' meaning ‘humanity'. This theme became the foundation upon which the festival was built, emphasizing the human experience in all its diverse forms.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, governor, underscored his commitment to nurturing creativity within the state.

Mr. Tobias Wolfgarten, Head of Programme at GIZ-SKYE delivered the keynote address, emphasizing the organization's plans to foster the growth of the creative sector in State, as well as create robust opportunities in film and theatre to boost youth employment.

A major highlight of the festival was the presentation of Azagidi: When Gods Die, a play that explores the themes of power struggles and complexities of love.
