The chairman of the main organising committee of the festival, Lt-Gen. Ishaya Rizi Bamaiyi, commended the state government and the Emir of Zuru for the successful hosting of the festival.

He called on the federal government to rehabilitate and reconstruct the Koko-Dabai Road in order to enhance agricultural activities in the emirate.
