Lagos promotes Badagry, woos tourism investors
The Lagos State Government has said efforts were on to promote the cultural and tourism potential of Badagry to attract investors into the area.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Arts and Culture, Mr Solomon Bonu, spoke during the celebration of the Black heritage Festival in Badagry.
Bonu, while addressing residents at the festival, said the celebration was part of plans to pursue the THEMES agenda of the current administration, which included the development of tourism and economic empowerment.
he said, “One unique thing about the Black heritage Festival is that this will be the first time the Badagry division will be coming out in this form to project the peculiarities of communities of each of the local government areas and local council development areas. This connotes the unity of purpose we have clamoured for as a division. It is also unique as we hope it will draw more international investors to the area.”
The special adviser enjoined participants at the event to continue to support the state in its quest to give the tourism potential in Badagry the needed attention.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Badagry Local Government Area, Mr Segun Onilude, whose council hosted other LGAS and LCDAS for the event, said the 2019 edition of the festival was “a celebration of unity and uniqueness.”
