Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has promised the Nollywood team of '93 Days,' who paid him a visit on Wednesday that his government would gladly support the movie which is aimed at telling the Nigerian story to the world.

Giving accolades to the Hollywood star, Danny Glover, for acknowledging his presence in the movie, Governor Ambode stated that it is a feat that is worth celebrating as it shows how the Lagos state government has been able to protect its citizens.

“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,” Ambode said.

Meanwhile, despite the fact that the country has been declared Ebola free, the government are still ensuring that the advert campaign prevention awareness is still aired on some media platforms to ensure that the public continue to be alerted on the need to stay clean always.
