I am very pleased to welcome the delegation of AFRIMA and the Africa Union once again to the State House in Lagos.
I had the opportunity of watching the Afrima music village on Television last night. I was impressed by the quality of the performances and turn-out of the Lagos crowd. I’m sure that like me, millions of people all over Africa and beyond, are looking forward to the main award ceremony tomorrow.
This of course is the reason why we are hosting the Afrima awards this year and why we are always willing to open our doors to great and credible initiatives that align with our vision to be the foremost hub for tourism and entertainment in Africa.
I therefore thank the organizers and the AU delegate for this great initiative and for a job well done. More importantly, my hearty congratulations go to all the nominees. In Lagos, you are all winners and we promise to see you again.
Please feel free, relax and be adventurous in our state. It is safe and secure mega city with no dull moments.Thank You.
Governor of Lagos State,
4th November, 2016.
