Entertainment industry, viable avenue for job creation – Governor Ambode
Lagos State will explore the potential that abounds in the entertainment and arts industry as a viable platform to create jobs for the teeming youths in the state.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode disclosed this when some 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 him a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.
He assured the team, led by veteran Hollywood actor, Mr. Danny Glover, that his government would give the necessary support to project the ideals of the film, stressing that the collective feat, which was recorded during the Ebola outbreak, would remain a milestone in the history of the state.
The Governor, while appreciating the crew for deeming it fit to use the film to retell the Ebola success story in Lagos, also seized the opportunity to name Glover as Brand Ambassador for Lagos.
