Lagos State Government at the weekend allayed residents and investors’ fear about living safely in the state, saying the state remains a safe haven for investments.
The state’s Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, Mr. Seye Oladejo said this at the launch of the campaign tagged ‘Lagos To The World (L2W) held in Lagos.
He said the State Government, in the last three years, had massively invested in security and safety of lives, adding that investors should be rest assured of safety and comfort in the State.
“The main thrust of any government is to ensure safety of lives and property and that is a selling point for Lagos State. Since the advent of the present administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, we have paid priority attention to issues bordering on safety and security.
“A case in point is the rebranding of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos Police Command; what we have been able to do in area of emergency response that speaks for itself; capacity building and acquisition of equipment. All these are being deliberately put in place to give investors confidence to know that Lagos is definitely ready for business,” Oladejo said.
Also speaking, Commissioner for Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives, Mrs. Olayinka Oladunjoye said by the launch of the campaign, Lagos was simply telling the world that it was ready for business, adding that a lot of incentives had been put in place to encourage investment.
“By the launch of this initiative, we want to sell Lagos to the world; we are saying Lagos is ready for business and that we mean business; we are telling the world that doing business in Lagos is the best thing to do; we are telling the world that ease of doing business in Lagos is for us a hallmark; we are telling the world that we are ready for investment.”
