The Commissioner stated that although the seed capital is domiciled with Lagos State Employment Trust Fund, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture decided to design a form that would help identify genuine practitioners, who have verifiable information domiciled with the Ministry.

In her words, the rationale behind the online form is to ensure the judicious disbursement of funds to genuine and qualified practitioners in the sector-related businesses.
