Lagos State Government, through the Lagos State Records & Archives Bureau (LASRAB), has reiterated its commitment to promote and preserve the rich heritage and cultural values of the people of the State.

According to the Director-General, Mrs Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola, the Bureau has organized the Children Heritage Tour 2021 event to encourage children of all ages to visit the facility for an educational and historical view of Lagos State and Nigeria as a whole.

The aim of the tour is to catch the children young by educating them on the importance of our historical and cultural heritage and how they can better appreciate it, as children are highly impressionable at this stage and they run with whatever they are taught to value.

This includes a tour of the LASRAB mini-museum, a comprehensive documentary on the evolution of Lagos State, story-telling and souvenirs.

Adebiyi-Abiola said, “The government is committed to ensuring that records of enduring value and historical artefacts are well preserved and maintained for the general public to make a recourse to and to serve as a veritable reference point.”

“A people without a carefully preserved historical heritage will soon go into extinction, as there will be nothing for the future generation to make reference to in order to establish their original identity.

”Also, it is our responsibility as an Agency of government to educate and sensitise the general public on the need to imbibe the culture of contributing to the rich heritage of the State, by donating records and artefacts of enduring value to its archives.”

She further stated that the tour is in compliance with all COVID 19 guidelines to curb the spread and to ensure the safety of all participants.
