His Excellency Gov, Ifeanyi Okowa will be the special guest of honour with other heads of government agencies and Royal fathers in attendance.
Similarly, the Principal Partner on the project, Yolanda Okereke-Fubara, said the event is overdue, as the state has both human and technical know-how to stage a world-class entertainment and fashion expo show in Nigeria,
Okereke-Fubara also spoke of the uniqueness of the Akwa Ocha, as a bespoke fabric of the Anioma people of Delta state, which has become a global brand as the State set to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of its people.
