The Minister of Information and Culture,  Lai Mohammed, has said that the nation has gradually begun diversifying its economy from oil to the creative industry to boost its internally generated revenue (IGR) and meet international standard.

The Minister said this at a function in Lagos.

He added that the government was focusing its attention on developing the creative sector as an alternative means of boosting the nation’s economy.

According to him, the creative industry is an area that opens up employment opportunities for the talented youths, thereby, reducing unemployment and possible youthful crimes.
