Canadian Mayor Praises Lagos Under Tinubu At Peter Obi’s Event

The Mayor of Brampton, Patrick Brown, has stated his admiration for Lagos State when he visited in the year 2007.

Brown said this at a townhall meeting hosted by the Coalition of Nigerian Canadian Interest Groups based in Canada to honour the 2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

As seen in a video posted late Saturday by a tweep, Wale Adedayo, tweeting as @Mario9jaa, Obi was seen standing beside Brown as he addressed the cheering audience.

Brown said, “I went to Nigeria in 2007. I went to Lagos and I fell in love with the country. Two years ago, I went back and once again, I toured the country. Anytime you visit Nigeria, you’re saying to yourself, ‘When can I go back?”

He stated that he was “blown away” by the nation’s movie industry, Nollywood.

“There’s a lot of love for Nigeria in my city,” he said.

Also, a member of the Provincial Parliament in Brampton North, Graham McGregor, tweeting as @BramptonGraham, on Sunday, wrote, “In Brampton, we’ve got one of the fastest growing Nigerian-Canadian communities. I’ve spoken with a few people here that are from Brampton and we’ve got a lot of exciting things going on.”

He noted the importance of building an “open, inclusive, welcoming economy for everybody. And to the connections we’re building here with the Nigerian-Canadian community, we want to make sure Nigerians are part of it.”
