Ambode, Lai Mohammed, tour National Museum ahead of rebuilding process

Ahead of the redesign and modernization of the National Museum at Onikan in Lagos into a world-class historical hub and tourist site, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, today February 7th undertook a tour of the edifice.

The visit is a follow-up to the promise by Ambode, during a courtesy visit to him two weeks ago by the Minister, to collaborate with the Federal Government in the modernization of the National Museum.

“So what we have done today is to find out what is required to collaborate and I am happy the DG has been able to take us round. We have seen what we have here and we believe that with this new partnership, Nigeria will be better for it. What I have seen is that we have enough space to actually create a new museum – a modern one – while the old one is still also in place,” the Governor stated.

He maintained that this is the kind of collaboration the Lagos State Government required with the Federal Government to create more jobs through culture and tourism and also to conserve the nation’s cultural heritage.
