Sanwo-Olu Promises Support For IT Industry

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has stated that his administration is committed to supporting policies that promote economic growth and give people access to jobs.

Sanwo-Olu expressed this commitment at the unveiling of the Jumia Integrated Warehouse located along the Oshodi-Apapa Motorway in Lagos recently.

The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Commerce, Cooperatives, Trade, and Investment, Mrs. Folashade Ambrose-Medebem, highlighted the state’s pivotal role in Nigeria and Africa’s overall economic landscape.

“This warehouse is a significant milestone not only for Jumia but also for the entire logistics and e-commerce landscape in Nigeria and Africa at large. It affirms Lagos not just as a hub of commerce but as the heartbeat of Nigeria’s economy and a beacon of opportunity and growth. It symbolises our commitment to fostering an environment where businesses can thrive, innovate, and contribute to the prosperity of our society.

“The future of commerce is digital, and Lagos is ready to support those who are willing to embrace this change. Our administration remains dedicated to creating a conducive environment for businesses to flourish, with robust infrastructure, favourable policies, and unwavering support”.

The commissioner praised Jumia’s remarkable journey in Nigeria, pointing out that the company had developed into a major e-commerce platform, changing the way people shop and conduct business.

“This new warehouse, with its vast capacity, will significantly enhance Jumia’s ability to serve its customers efficiently, meeting the ever-growing demands of the e-commerce sector. It is a bold economic step forward in ensuring that goods can be delivered faster, more reliably, and at a lower cost. It will also create numerous jobs and provide skill development opportunities, further strengthening our local workforce.”
