The Lagos State Government said on Saturday that the number of 2023 Africa Cup of Nations viewing centres had been increased from 15 to 20.
The Special Assistant to Govenor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sports, Mr Damilare Orimoloye, said this in an interview with NAN.
Orimoloye, at the monthly ‘Keep Fit Lagos’ programme organised by the state government, promised that Lagos residents would have more to cheer during the AFCON matches.
He said, “The idea to increase the AFCON viewing centres across Lagos State is in line with the THEME Plus Agenda of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, which emphasises social inclusion.
“The idea is that our people will have the opportunity to go out and mingle while watching the AFCON 2023; people will come out to interact with other football fans.
“This project will increase bonding and networking among our people in a more friendly environment.
“We now have five additional centres added to the previous 15 which makes a total of 20 centres across Lagos, which will enhance more proximity so that more people will come out.”
