The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has described as historic the participation of Lagos in the United Kingdom’s Lord Mayor Show where Lagos showcased its economic potential in a bid to woo investors.

The Lagos State government and EnterpriseNGR, on November 11, as African participants in the Lord Mayor’s Show, celebrated the cultural heritage and economic prowess of the state and Nigeria.

According to a statement on Thursday, Sanwo-Olu, while reflecting on the state’s performance at the UK show, said, “Our participation in the Lord Mayor’s Show was a resounding success. This visit had a more strategic purpose. It was a manifestation of our commitment to a bold vision—positioning Lagos as Africa’s beacon of financial innovation. The newly inaugurated LIFC Council played a pivotal role in showcasing the investment potential of Lagos on a global platform.

“As our procession made its way through the streets of London, we let it be known that Lagos was not just participating in a historic parade, we were striding into the global spotlight, inviting the world to witness our dynamism and echoing the message that our great state is open for business, with a myriad of investment opportunities available to all.”

On his part, the Chairman of EnterpriseNGR, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, said, “Our historic participation in the Lord Mayor’s Show underscored the critical role public-private partnerships play in driving transformative change within and beyond Nigeria’s financial and professional services sector. Our successful joint participation is a testament to our unwavering commitment to fostering strategic partnerships that contribute to the economic prosperity of Lagos and Nigeria.”
