A group, Sprit of Lagos’ is set to honour some exceptional citizens and residents of Lagos who have in one way or the other contributed to the development of the State.

Addressing journalists in Lagos on Wednesday on the awards tagged, ‘Citizen’s Day’, which will have in attendance the Executive governor of Lagos, Babatunde Fashola, Project Director Olaniyi Omotoso said it is part of ‘Spirit of Lagos’ effort to encourage Lagos residents to restore, share and protect the many values that made Lagos great.

Slated for May 27, the awards ceremony according to Omotoso will be in three categories-Individual, Public Service and Corporate Organisations. The event which will commemorate the 48th anniversary of the creation of Lagos State will have in attendance citizens from different background.

“The award is to inspire and acknowledge good behaviour as well as engender and sustain attitudinal change among Lagos residents. The search for these exceptional citizens and organisations will extend to all the 57 Local Council Development Areas in Lagos State and will give residents the opportunity to identify and nominate those who they feel are worthy of the awards in their localities,” Omotoso said.

The group focuses on the development of the infrastructure of the mind which underlies, supports, and enhances the physical and social infrastructures which the State government has been aggressively developing in recent past.
