The newly sworn-in Lagos Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Toke Benson-Awoyinka, says the state tourism sector is about to witness a new era of development never seen before.
A statement issued by the ministry on Friday, said that Benson-Awoyinka made the remark when she addressed management and members of staff of the ministry on assumption of duty.
Benson-Awoyinka, who addressed the staff alongside the Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr Idris Aregbe, affirmed their readiness to start work immediately.
She, however, solicited the cooperation of the workforce and tourism stakeholders toward attaining the vision of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the sector in the state.
“Standing before you are two people ready to work from day one and tourism is about to witness a level of development never seen before. Please, we solicit your cooperation to make this a reality,” she said.
Earlier, while welcoming the commissioner and special adviser to the ministry, the Permanent Secretary, Mrs Oloruntoyin Atekoja, said the ministry was glad to have them.
Atekoja pledged the full cooperation and support of the workforce in ensuring that their set goals and objectives are achieved.
