Nashuka emphasized that the festival is not merely an event, but a testament to the rich heritage and communal spirit of the people of Taraba State. It highlights the importance of peace and unity in fostering development and prosperity within the state.

The NCNCSON also recognized the Taraba State Ministry of Tourism, led by Hon. Commissioner, Rev. Joseph Titus Nagombe, for their unwavering dedication to revitalizing and developing tourism in the state. 

The ministry’s initiatives, including the Gembu Tourism Festival and the Nwonyo Fishing Festival, organized within a year, demonstrate a commitment to making Taraba State a premier tourist destination.
