Lagos plans to grow tourism – Vanguard


Lagos state government has designed a road map towards achieving the goals of making the state  foremost in terms of richness in tourism  through the “One Lagos” initiative.

The Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture in the state, Mr. Folarin Coker, stated this at the official closing of a three day musical and film entertainment, tagged:  ‘One Lagos brand,” at the  Bar Beach, weekend.

He  said the state government through the ministry is working towards sustaining the impressive growth recorded so far in the state tourism sector by introducing other new initiatives to draw global attention to its tourism potentials in the state.

According to Coker; “We are using entertainment to drive hospitality, tourism. You can see the philosophy behind the One Lagos event. It is a tourism initiative to drive tourism using entertainment.

“This is entertainment, we are in Lagos, it is music, it is dance, its culture and where best to hold this than  the Bar Beach?. At night the weather is cool and traffic is down and this is the best time people want to enjoy themselves.”

According to him, the global economy has a huge problem, adding that the nation has no choice than to invest in an alternative economy to generate more income internally.

Folarin said, “What do we have here, we have music, film, our film industry is number two in the world, we have a population of 22 million

He maintained that Lagos is rich in culture, values and has all that any nation could possess to develop its economy base and that was why the state embarked on “One Lagos” campaign to reverse the negative conversation about Lagos.

The 3-day event which recorded over twenty thousand attendants on a daily show, paraded top rated musical artistes’, veteran comedians and cultural displays to the delight of the guests.

Other side attractions included Dancing Competitions, Fashion Runway and Kids’ entertainment segments.
