The edifice of Oshodi Arts gallery and it’s entire management team received the permanent secretary, ministry of Tourism, culture and art Lagos state (Princess Adenike Adedoyin-Ajayi) on the 1st of February 2022
Chaperoned by her director of tourism, director of strategic planning, personal assistant to the senior special adviser on tourism in lagos state and reps from numerous departments on tourism, the official visit was met with mostly positive reviews at the 2nd largest art collection centre in Africa, based in Ikorodu
Marveled by the facility expanse and magnitude of masterpiece positioned around the gallery, the PS asserted that her long overdue visit was based on constant recommendation by partners and ranking file staffs in the ministry who have touched down the structure prior
Princess Adenike Adedoyin-Ajayi proceeded, “What am seeing here is considered world class standard, I guess the reason why we’ve not heard much about this structure is due to lack of adequate publicity, and I want to strongly urge the CEO of this influential contour to execute more advertising and propaganda”
Discovering the structure also epitomizes 7 different studios (including painting, graphics, animation, ceramics, textiles and the newly built fashion room) with a lot of production machines and in-house manufactured fabrics, the PS explored opportunities to unlock channel for active partnership from the ministry, enabling community development liaison with the Art Centre
She continued, “Everything about this art centre is unique and different from what I’ve seen across Lagos state. And also after seeing students (from Laspotech, Yabatech and Ambrose Ali University in Ekpoma) presently undergoing their IT training, I crave to commend this organisation and establishment to go on with the good works been performed here”

Recounting the visionary path of the gallery, Dr Oshodi Seyi Paul, in his return speech of appreciation to the permanent secretary averred that the centre decided to reside in Ikorodu based on it’s mission and capacity scope, not only in exhibition of art works, but also in production and training aspects of the organisation
“Our foresight is utilisation of extra space and landmass to achieve better which is more visible in Ikorodu than places like Victoria Island or the interior axis of the mainland”
“Here in Ikorodu we’re expanding everyday, we recently acquired a plot of land and half by the side of the gallery to further enhance our structure in the area of cinematic live arts productions”
“We’re gazing at more partnership with the lagos state ministry of tourism, arts and culture for active partnership to promote a great relationship, although we have taken note of the suggestions made by our amiable permanent Secretary on the areas of more publicity and awareness” Dr Oshodi Paul (CEO Oshodi Arts Gallery) enlarged
The PS in conclusion asserted that Oshodi arts gallery will be an integral part of the forthcoming Lagos state Arts and cultural festival slated to hold in the last quarter of 2022
