Apart from NFIU, Other critical stakeholders in Local Government administration in Lagos State had equally confirmed their attendance.
LG News Boss further confirming their attendees said “I have gotten so many calls from local Government councils officials and other stake holders seeking assurance that the NFIU officials would truly be around for L G News 10th year Anniverssary.
This is the back story.
“As the date for the 10th Anniversary drew nearer, I told myself I wanted the vice President Professor Yemi Osibajo to attend. However, when I shared my thoughts with my team, friends and colleagues, they could not stop laughing. I was told it was impossible and unachievable. I discussed with the only one person who got my back 24/7 – God.
“Determined, i flew to Abuja to hand deliver the letter. I eventually accessed the VP’s office miraculously and as God would have it, I met a great gentleman there . We spoke extensively and the idea of the NFIU came up. I went back to my hotel room, did another letter to the NFIU. I got to the agency but was not allowed into the complex because security was so tight. I was determined to see anyone and eventually God sent a good Samaritan who took my letter in.
“It was acknowledged and i returned back to Lagos. Since i got no feed back from the agency, we decided to build the celebrations around a great leader Alhaji Lateef Jakande. A couple of days to the event however, i got a surprise call from the NFIU. I was informed three officials will be attending the event. The Director of legal and Operations made that call. They would fly in a day before the event he said. They asked for a projector to enable a power point presentation etc. we have been communicating since.
“This is the back story and hopefully, sufficient explanation for all enquiries. Thank You,” Tjak stated.
