Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says Lagos has evolved from squalor to become one of the biggest economies in Africa.
The Governor stated this at the Africa Investment Forum, AIF, in Marrakech, Morocco, with the theme: “Leveraging Cities and Municipalities for National Development.”
Sanwo-Olu said the progress was not without its attendant development challenges, which he attributed to self-inflicted troubles resulting from the growth trajectory of the State over the past two decades.
The Governor said his administration had doubled the drive in public planning to harness the State’s population potential.
Sanwo-Olu also stated that his Government had been addressing infrastructure deficit by committing short- and long-term investments in critical areas to bolster Lagos’ resilience and aid mass mobility.
