Akinwunmi Ambode, Executive Governor of Lagos, said there are lots of job opportunities in the entertainment industry.
Incumbent Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has claimed that the entertainment industry is capable of creating jobs for the teeming youth population. Governor Ambode said this while hosting members of cast and crew of ’93 Days’, a film which chronicles how Lagos was able to effectively contain the Ebola Virus Disease last year, paid a courtesy visit to him at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.
The Governor of Lagos State also promised to support the grow of the entertainment industry in the state.
Clearly, what you have done to join hands with our people in Nollywood is to celebrate one of the major successes of Lagos State.
Our government will support this project. No story can be told better than in graphic form and once you are turning this story to a movie, it means that every other part of achievements that we can put together is going to be something historic. It’s happening for the very first time. Apart from the fact that it is showing the way government has been able to respond to issues that relate to the society, we are also showcasing what Lagos stands for.
The cast and crew of the movie “93”, lead by veteran actor Mr Danny Grover, acknowledged the efforts of the state government in curtailing the Ebola Virus Disease adding that it was not a mean feat.
Governor Ambode also seized the opportunity to name Mr. Glover as Brand Ambassador for Lagos, saying that his wealth of experience will benefit the entertainment industry in the state immensely.
