The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has described the importance of economic development to the progress of the Lagos metropolis.

Sanwo-Olu explained this on Thursday while speaking at the on-going Africa Investment Forum (AIF) in Marrakech, Morocco, with the theme: “Leveraging Cities and Municipalities for National Development”.

According to the governor, more people are moving to Lagos from other regions of the nation as the state makes progress in its development.

He, however, added that unregulated migration is directly increasing the state’s population, which is also placing an excessive strain on its services and infrastructures.

He explained:

Economic sustainability is critical indicator to measure progress of a city, so that people can know that they are in a city where resources need to be used effectively. The strength of the city is about economic development. Africa is the resource centre of the world due to the abundance of youth energy domiciled in the continent. I am delighted to see African cities coming together for peering and evaluation of development indices. We need to get the youth engaged and create opportunities to guarantee their future”.

The forum is a multi-stakeholders platform that promotes infrastructure investment and raises capital for city projects.
