The statement reads in part;
Although Mr. Governor has hosted the President during some of his visits to Lagos, next week’s visit by President Muhammadu Buhari will be one with a difference,
It is a visit where Mr. President will again see the beauty of Lagos and take the opportunity to see first-hand and commission the life changing and people-oriented projects undertaken by the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu administration.
According to the state government, the projects to be commissioned include the Lekki Deep Sea Port, a symbol of a good working relationship between the public and private sectors; and the 32-metric tons per hour Lagos Rice Mill, one of the largest in the world.
Others are an 18.75-kilometer six-lane rigid-pavement Eleko Junction to Epe Expressway; the John Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History; the iconic Lagos Blue Line rail project; and an MRS Lubricant factory, a private sector project in Apapa.
