Lagos State GovernorLagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode unveiled plans for transforming few landmark areas in the Marina and Onikan axis of the State into a world class one-stop recreation and tourism centre on Monday. He said that the State Government will soon begin constructing a brand new contemporary Museum in the State as part of its overall policy to become self-sufficient and secure the future prosperity of the State.

 
The governor regretted that although Nigeria is blessed with a rich culture and heritage, today’s youths do not have strong appreciation of the nation’s history over the years. He said that his administration has decided to come up with a new world class museum that would display the priceless treasures of Nigeria and this project will be funded by the State Government and other donors, interested organizations and individuals.

 
To quote Governor Ambode, “Society must cherish its historical antecedents because they serve as source of inspiration for succeeding generations to discover, appreciate and take pride in their identity. It has become very imperative that we take a step back and revisit our history. It has become important that we renew efforts to preserve and protect our history and historical artefacts. This project will serve generations of Nigerians now and in the future. Our plan is to harness the potentials in our rich cultural heritage to drive tourism in Lagos State.”

 

He said that besides the new museum, the State Government is also reviving the Museum in Onikan, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture especially the Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
