Update On Lagos Caravan Trip

Hi All,

Based on the deliberations at the meeting on August 2nd 2015, it is imperative to give an update on the
takeoff of the caravan from Lagos.

If the caravan was to take off on the 7th of August and stay the night in Lome and arrive in Accra on the 8th this will attract an additional cost of about $420.

Please let me know your views on this so we can take a decision as soon as possible.

Tentatively Lagos caravan...
