Dangote, Abdulsamad Rabiu, Others For Editors’ Plaza Foundation Laying Ceremony



President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, is to lead the foundation stone laying ceremony for the multi-purpose Editors’ Plaza, a project of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) scheduled for Thursday, March 1, 2018 in the Guzape District of Abuja.

Former governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio, will chair the event while the Chairman of BUA Group, Alhaji Abdulsamad Rabiu, will perform the traditional ‘turning of the sod’ to herald the construction of the plaza for Nigerian editors in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Alhaji Mohammed Bello, and his Information and Culture counterpart, Alhaji Lai Mohammed are also expected to grace the occasion.

The turning of the sod for the Editors’ Plaza is sequel to a fund-raiser on April 10, 2014 in Abuja under the leadership of the then President of the Guild, Mr Femi Adesina. The goal was to raise funds to build a secretariat for the Guild in Abuja to be named Editors’ Plaza.

The President of the Guild, Mrs Funke Egbemode, said part of the proposed Editors’ Plaza in Abuja would serve as the Guild’s secretariat, while the rest would be leased to the public as offices.
