Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State informed Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Anniken Huitfeldt on Monday, April 17, about his landslide victory in the state’s governorship election on March 18.

The governor shared this during a courtesy visit by the Norwegian Minister to the Government House in Ikeja.

Expressing his gratitude, the governor commended Lagosians for their trust in his government, which provided him with the democratic mandate to serve for another four years.

“This was hardly a close election. That was a landslide win; thank you to every Lagosian for trusting in us again and giving us the constitutional and democratic authority to run for another four years. We are quite modest. We are pleased that at the end of the gubernatorial elections, the voice of the people, particularly Lagosians, was quite loud and clear, and they gave us an overwhelming majority,” the governor stated, as reported by Channels TV.

He reiterated the state government’s commitment to establishing ties and fostering collaborations with the Norwegian government and businesses in the energy, infrastructure, and technology sectors to build a prosperous economy.

Sanwo-Olu emphasized that his administration was dedicated to ensuring clean energy, infrastructure development, and investments in technology, healthcare, and education to keep the state resilient.

He mentioned that the state had been working relentlessly to address all its challenges, especially those that had affected its Gross Domestic Product over the years, and he thanked Lagosians for their confidence in his government.

“We have established an economy where investment is genuine, where conducting business, both domestic and international, is simple, and where people can have faith in the state’s stability. Yes, we are a subnational, but we want to continue to be the preferred place for investors.

“As a result, we are open to new investments, particularly in technology, a field in which we know that all unicorns have a career in Lagos. We want to be the place where individuals can come and sift resources based on the capabilities that are necessary,” he added.
