Elaborate plans fro Lagos Jazz Fest

Published on : Thursday, April 28, 2016

Jazz FestivalGovernor of Lagos, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, expressed optimism on Wednesday that the events lined up for the forthcoming Lagos International Jazz Day will go a long way to showcase the tourism potentials of the State to the World.

Speaking at the Lagos House, Ikeja, Governor Ambode playing host to some of the groups collaborating with the State Government on the forthcoming star-studded concert to commemorate the 2016 International Jazz Day, said that apart from being the financial and commercial hub of Nigeria, his administration would work hard to equally transform Lagos to the tourism hub of Africa.

He reiterated his administration’s strong commitment to use tourism, hospitality, sports, entertainment and arts to boost the economy of the state, just as he assured that nothing would be spared in transforming Lagos to the tourism hub of Africa.

Ambode said: “We want to emulate and even surpass the International Jazz Festival in Cape Town, South Africa, and then be on the world stage and that is the significance of this collaboration that we have decided to go into. During the election campaign, we did promise that we will use entertainment and arts, tourism and sports to propel Lagos to the next level and this is one of the ways through which we hope to achieve that. We will create jobs for the people and create that global picture of what Lagos is and what Lagos is not.”
