Atiku said in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja on Wednesday that the Turaki Adamawa is not only delighted that Lagos has been selected to host such an august event but is confident that the city has all it takes to ensure that the event will be memorable and successful especially in view of the cosmopolitan nature of the city and the famed easy-going nature of its residents.
He described the city of Lagos as being like a home to him in view of having spent several years of his public service career there.
"I'm not any less Lagosian that anyone is. I have a house in Lagos and a part of my large family lives in Lagos. I visit Lagos regularly so I'm not a stranger to the cosmopolitan city and what it represents as the melting pot of Nigeria," Atiku said.
The former Vice President congratulated the Government and the people of Lagos State on the unique opportunity offered them by the APC to excel and showcase "the spirit of Lagos."
