“We have always said that one of the important assets we have is our cultural heritage, our history and this project, which is going to immortalise the Ransome-Kuti family, is laudable and admirable.

“The family, as you know, represents different things to different people, whether you talk about education, emancipation, music or entertainment.

“The emphasis of this government, whether state or federal, is that the creative industry must be turned into creative economy and this centre is going to be a good model to encourage and inspire the youth.”

Also addressing journalists, Governor Amosun, said: “The creative industry should be turned to a creative economy – we are going have museums for all of them, it is not just the Kuti family alone.

“All our icons have a special place in our administration. These are the people who define us, when we go out there and say we are from Ogun State. We can’t call ourselves who we say we are without those giants who lived before us.
