To quote Mohammed, “Also, it will provide Nigeria the opportunity to showcase itself to the world, especially in the area of its culture and tourism. And of course, we have a lot to showcase: Our tourist attractions, our rich culture, as well as our music and films, which have taken the world by storm.”

The minister said that preparations for the event are in top gear and he asked for the support of Nigerians to make the event a huge success.
