The real identity of Lagos will not be neglected -Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday reiterated his administration’s commitment to the actualisation of the six pillars of development tagged T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda for Greater Lagos.

He said the remodelling of Glover Memorial Hall on Lagos Island reflects the determination of his administration to rebuild Lagos as well as promote the entertainment and tourism sector.

Speaking at the official handover of the remodelled Glover Memorial Hall at Customs Street, Lagos Island, Governor Sanwo-Olu assured Lagosians that his administration would not neglect the real identity of Lagos, saying he would not relent in his efforts to make the creative industry as well as entertainment and tourism thrive.

He said: “The completion and inauguration of the remodelled Glover Memorial Hall reflects our determination to rebuild Lagos, revamp our historic/public assets and develop the entertainment, creative and tourism sector, which is one of the pillars of our T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.”

“Our administration is mindful of the fact that the tourism and entertainment sector is an integral part of socio-economic development, and the overall well-being of our citizens, which is why this sector will not be neglected in our drive to make Lagos a megacity. We are committed to innovatively seek ways of providing the enabling environment for the tourism and entertainment sector to thrive.

 

“Today’s event signals a gradual return of activities within the tourism and entertainment sector. It is a boost for our creative practitioners and entertainers as well as the necessary catalyst for economic growth because if we properly harness our human and capital resources, tourism and entertainment will become major contributors to socio-economic growth and development.

“I assure you that the remodelled Glover Memorial Hall will not only boost activities in the entertainment and creative sector, it will also restore the glorious days when it served as a relaxation point for Lagosians including those who live and work on the Island. It is a testament to a splendid past and an indicator of a more glorious future in which Lagosians have the jobs and opportunities that they require to flourish. On our part, we will not relent in fostering collaborative investments for the advancement of our shared prosperity.”

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who also inspected the J. K. Randle Park, which he said would soon be turned to a world-class museum centre, said his administration has initiated deliberate efforts and interventions to ensure that creative practitioners are able to find their feet in the post COVID-19 era.
