Group unveils largest T-shirt for Lagos @50 celebration

As activities lined up for the celebra­tion of Lagos@50 gather momentum, a group named Team Nigeria has presented a 7-feet anniver­sary T-Shirt, tagged ‘Eko Shirt’ to the Lagos State Government.
Speaking at the unveiling of the Tee-shirt, the Com­missioner for the Minis­try of Local Government and Community Affairs, Hon. Muslim Folami com­mended the initiative and described it as a welcome partnership for develop­ment. He said that the initi­ative by Team Nigeria com­plements the unwavering support of the State Gov­ernment to theatre devel­opment and performance arts across the State.
While canvassing support for the present administra­tion to deliver more of its promises on improved in­frastructure, programmes and projects, Folami called on Non-governmental Or­ganisations (NGOs), to join hands with the State Gov­ernment in making the cel­ebration a memorable and worthwhile experience.
Speaking on the anni­versary T-Shirt initiative, the Creative Director of Team Nigeria, Mr. Olafemi George commended the Ministry for giving the group the leverage to dis­cover creative and talented youths across the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Council Development Ar­eas in the State.
He said that the meaning­ful engagement of youths has helped in giving quali­tative life to some of them who were initially victims of neglect and societal mis­demeanour.
According to him, the Group is planning to host an uninterrupted theatrical performance of 150 hours in a bid to set the Group and the State on the inter­national scene and take a prime place in the Guin­ness Book of Records as the convener of the longest marathon theatre perfor­mance.
George said that the group is also counting on the kind gesture of benevolent indi­viduals in the course of the anniversary celebration to bring to reality its vision of donating a primary school to the State Government in Somolu area of the State.
He said that the unveiling of the 7-feet T-Shirt ver­sion precedes the 50-feet by 35-feet T-Shirt that would eventually be presented to the State Government to herald the anniversary.
