According to Oba Ewuare, works are near conclusion at the site of the academy which would be named “Benin Royal Academy of Performing Art”.

The Oba said aside the teaching and learning of various Benin cultural heritage, the academic would also teach deeper proverbial and interpretations of Benin traditional heritage in rhythms and arts.

He said the academy would also serve as learning centre to all categories of persons, especially the young, who are almost veering out of the traditional norms of the society.

Oba Ewuare emphasised that reputable individuals who are well grounded in Benin history, culture and heritage would serve as tutors in the new academy.

He pointed out that the refurbishment of Oba Akenzua cultural centre to an international standard would rake in more revenue to the state.
