US Diplomats meet with stakeholders in the Nigerian entertainment industry (PHOTOS)

The United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington and Consul-General John Bray have on Saturday met with stakeholders in Nigeria’s entertainment industry. 
The event organized by leading talent agency, Temple Management Company (TMC) was held at the US Consul-General’s private residence in Ikoyi, Lagos. 
Speaking at the event, the US ambassador urged the creative sector to tell African stories in a positive way, as that was the true strength of the Nigerian people. 
Symington said, “I have travelled the length and breadth of this great country, from Maiduguri to Lagos, from Kebbi to Calabar, and there are fantastic stories to tell.
“You are all in a unique position to carry the torch for this continent.”
The CEO of TMC, Idris Olorunnimbe commended the US Consul-General’s foresight in recognising the role of the creative sector in the development of a nation. 
He said, “This has been a fruitful evening.
“Many of the Ambassador’s words foreshadowed the reasons why Temple was set up in the first place. We simply have to tell our own stories.”
