Nigeria has set a clear growth and development agenda in its Vision 20:2020 (http://bit.ly/1xZPPeO). It seeks to become one of the 20 largest economies in the world, raise living standards, expand access to electricity to 75 per cent of the population and decouple growth from dependence on petroleum. Philips’ innovative LED lighting solutions tie in greatly with Nigeria’s ambition to improve energy performance in public spaces.
“We’re delighted with the project Philips has completed at the National Theater of Arts here in Lagos,” states Mr. Mallam Kabir Yusuf, General Manager and CEO of the National Theater. “To think that such an iconic building in the Lagos skyline now has a state-of-the-art digital lighting technology for the façade is just wonderful. Now the world class and environmentally friendly look of the building ascetically from outside at night will complement the top class contribution of performers and artists inside the building, as well as the breathtaking renovations that have recently taken place in and around the big edifice.”
