Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has received the share certificate of Lagos State government from the Odu’a Investment Company Limited, a company jointly owned by the six South-West states, saying the state is willing to deepen business relationships in the region.
The Share Certificate was presented to Governor Sanwo-Olu by the Chairman, Odu’a Investment Company Limited, Otunba Bimbo Ashiru during a courtesy visit to the Governor by the company’s board members and management team at Lagos House, Ikeja.
Speaking after receiving the Share Certificate, Governor Sanwo-Olu said Lagos State government is willing to partner with Odu’a Investment Company to deepen the relationship among South-West states in agriculture, hospitality, oil and gas, tourism and other business opportunities.
“We thank you very much for putting paid to doubting Thomases who are not sure whether Lagos State has been brought in as part of Odu’a Investment. Lagos State before now has been accepted as equal partner, equal shareholder with governors of the five other states and we are all equal stakeholders in the group.
“We thank you very much for presenting our Share Certificate to us. We have enjoyed dividends a couple of times already and it goes to show that our investment is yielding the right results. Lagos State is happy that we have made that investment and we are part of a great and bigger agenda called the Odu’a Investment.
“We are willing to partner with Odu’a Investment Company on our Imota Rice Mill. The Rice Mill will be commissioned in October or November depending on the timing of our guest. It is something that we all need to celebrate. That would be the biggest single rice mill in the country and it is a pride for all of us.
Earlier, Ashiru, who said Lagos State is a bonafide member of the Odu’a Investment Company Limited, disclosed that the board members and management team visited Governor Sanwo-Olu to appreciate him and Lagos State Government for their support to the company.
He said they decided to hand over the Share Certificate to Governor Sanwo-Olu to silence doubting Thomases who don’t believe that Lagos State is part of the Odu’s Investment Company.
Ashiru, who requested for more support from Lagos State Government, said they are ready to partner and work with the state government for more business opportunities in hospitality, real estate, tourism and agriculture, especially the Imota Rice Mill.
