Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola presents the emblem of the state government to US tennis stars Venus (C) and Serena Williams during a visit at the government house in Lagos October 31, 2012. International tennis superstars Serena and Venus Williams arrived in Nigeria's largest city yesterday as part of a two-nation tour that will see them play exhibition matches to promote women's rights. Their trip is aimed at promoting "the role that women play in shifting perceptions and encouraging development at all levels across the African continent," said a statement from the Breaking The Mould initiative they are representing. The ladies will hold a tennis clinic at an exclusive Ikoyi club, visit a puberty education class for girls and play an exhibition match before heading to South Africa on November 2. AFP PHOTO
