The statement shed light on Okpe music, art, food, films, literature and dance.

‘’We hope that through Okpe Union Day, the world will come to understand more about Okpe Kingdom, our history, cultural diversity and creativity’’.

“There will be prayers, live performance, President General’s Address, music, dance, storytelling, lecture and eating” the statement added.
