Fashola: Lagos Countdown Festival Rated Very High. See images and video of a marriage proposal

The Lagos state new year's countdown has always been one to look forward to, the excitement, the lighting, the fireworks, music etc always sets up an atmosphere of happiness and cause for celebration.
Gov Fashola took time to gloat about the event, which I think is very allowed seeing his efficiency and input towards the beauty of Lagos and certainly means he has the people at heart.
Lagos State Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola, yesterday said the state's countdown programme had been rated among the top 10 in the world.
He expressed profound gratitude and appreciation to the corporate organisations that partnered the state to make the 2014 edition a success, saying their support has been of immense contribution to the success of the annual festival, he said this at the grand finale of the 2014 edition organised by the state government through the State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA) to usher in the New Year.

Also commending LASAA and all the sponsors of the countdown for a hitch-free crossover event and for making the 2014 Lagos Countdown a success.

Fashola rated the standard of the countdown festivities very high, saying it was of international standard and compared with any other being held in developed countries.
The Gov said: “When we started this countdown idea, it was meant to be a Lagos State Government project, but these partners came as support and made so much happen as we have it now.”

Fashola commended the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, for his support, noting that the edition “will be my last speech as the Lagos State governor at the Countdown Festival.
“I recall how this project was conceptualised, and I am happy to have fulfilled a countdown of this quality, thanks to everyone who have made this possible”.

The governor used the opportunity to drum up support for his party’s candidate for the next election, saying Lagosians should support, Akinwunmi Ambode so that he can continue the giant strides that had been initiated in Lagos including the end of year festivities.
“I want to assure Lagosians that Akinwunmi Ambode can be trusted to continue this project. He was the accountant general at the debut of this event, he has the experience,” he said.
Those who performed at the event included Sir Victor Owaifo, Sir Shina Peters, Daddy Showkey flanked by 2face, Banky W, Omawumi, Olamide, Phyno, Reminisce, Seyi Shay and many others.
The event was also graced by great personalities including Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, and Nigerian Breweries boss, Kufre Ekanem, among others.
