Sanwo-Olu Woos US investors, Lists Achievements

The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said his administration’s achievements in the past three years will serve as a means to woo investors to the state and provide more opportunities for citizens.

According to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, on Tuesday, the governor stated this during his meeting with a group of would-be investors on the sidelines of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly at a roundtable organised by the Business Council for International Understanding in New York.

He said, “There are opportunities in water transportation. From seven ferries, the state’s fleet has risen to 21, besides many others run by private operators. Investors can double the fleet. Many of the 15 jetties being built by the state are ready for commissioning and the aim is to have an integrated urban transportation system.

“Over 1,000 school projects have been completed and we have introduced technology to make teaching and learning an exciting experience. We are seeing the results. We used to have about 36 per cent pass in school certificate examinations; now, we have about 80 per cent. We are opening brand new schools and introducing technology by giving teachers tablets to aid their job.

“About 6,000 km fibre optic cable is being laid around the state, and its first phase of 3,000 km was almost completed. This will aid faster and cheaper internet connectivity, thereby boosting service in hospitals and schools, besides boosting the impressive activities of the youth in the tech ecosystem.”

In his response, the Managing Director (Africa) of McLARTY Associates, Terence McCulley, said, “You can be the ambassador of the private sector to the Federal Government, providing an enabling environment for manufacturing, agriculture and technology, which are drivers of diversification.”
