“The stakeholders in this industry have shown that they can achieve much more in terms of boosting revenue base, the GDP as well as creating wealth and employment for our people.
The Nominees Party is a precursor to the main awards, which will hold in Lagos on July 15, 2017 at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre and it is being officially hosted by the Lagos State Government as part of a year-long celebration of Lagos @ 50
The Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, who represented the State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, at the AMAA 2017 Sponsors’ Night on Thursday, made the call when he said the government of the state is prepared to make the awards this year a very beautiful experience

The Governor Nyesom Wike-led state, which is the headquarters of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria, signed the hosting right with the management of AMAA, making Rivers State the second sub-national government in Nigeria to tap into the huge potentials of AMAA for destination branding
Anyiam-Osigwe said it was just a figment of the imagination of those making the allegations and simply just to run the down brand.
According to Madam Peace, as she is popularly called: “Since over 11 years of AMAA, we have cared for over 15,000 people across the board through nominations and the event itself
Anyiam-Osigwe died at a hospital in Lagos on Sunday from injuries sustained during the attack
The ridiculous allegation and attempt at deliberate mischief to cause public opprobrium and hate for the government of Bayelsa State under the leadership of Hon. Seriake Dickson and the AMAA brand is a very cheap and brainless blackmail by the Bayelsa State Chapter of APC
