“The Lagos State Government is set to be involved in the celebration of this year’s World Tourism Day, which has always been a custom for us in the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
“By this Sunday, starting from noon, the ministry will hold a hybrid intense, brainstorming and very incisive session, as a way of celebrating the WTD 2020.
“I encourage all participants to avail themselves of the opportunity to get entertained and learn more of Lagos culture,”
“We hope that the event would further enhance our road map for the ministry to discover more tourism sites for development, hence, we are involving tourism stakeholders across the state’s five divisions.
“This year’s celebration is very unique and peculiar in the history of the entire world, coming at a time when tourism activities is suffering a serious setback due to the inactivity in the sector, occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu reiterated at the last Exco Retreat that the pandemic will not be a reason for non-performance, or a hindrance for the delivery of his Greater Lagos mandate, premised on the THEMES Agenda,”
