Post created on 12:12 pm


The organisers of Christmas in Delta State under the leadership of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori will commission the tallest Christmas tree in Africa today, Monday in Asaba.

This was contained in a statement released by the organisers to pressmen that the fiesta is aimed at giving deltans and visitors a memorable Christmas.

During an inspection of the project and other fun sites to make the event memorable, Executive Assistant (EA) to the Governor on Culture and Tourism, Dr Josephine Odunze said the initiative is to create an atmosphere of fun during the festive period.

The project fully supported by the Governor is to bring an unforgettable experience for 45 days with the tallest tree as a center of attraction.

Odunze said “People have asked me why the Christmas tree is positioned where it is. I tell them that we cannot be selling Delta to Deltans by positioning the tree in town. We should be marketing Delta to outsiders. It is happening here in Delta State; 45 days of endless fun.”

Also speaking about the event, a member of the organizing committee member, Fred Onojeta, said the initiative was to explore the state’s tourism potential, thereby commending the Oborevwori administration for an enabling environment for such enterprises to thrive.

“When the team put this event together tagged ‘Christmas in Delta: 45 Days of Fond Memories served daily, it was audacious to put the tallest Christmas tree in Africa here in Asaba. We thought it was impossible,” he said.
