Swiss Ambassador to Nigeria, George Steiner, and Lagos State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Wednesday met in Abuja during a strategic visit to the former by the latter.

Steiner said Lagos has a huge market size. “Lagos is a natural point of attraction for investment because of market size. If you won your election we will partner with you to improve quality of lives in Lagos with increased investments from Swiss companies.

“Our country and Nigeria enjoy very good bilateral relationship. With Lagos as the commercial centre of Nigeria we will strengthen that relationship. I have listened to you on your THEME priority programmes and I believe, if well implemented it will bring greater good to Lagos,” Steiner said.

Sanwo-Olu, in his remarks, said: “Our campaign is hinged on a comprehensive development agenda which we tagged: THEME – Traffic management and transportation; Health and environment; Education and technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century economy; and Entertainment and tourism.

“The role of private sector investments is critical to our agenda. We welcome more investments from Swiss companies and I can assure that they will have a worthy partner in the government and people of Lagos.”
