Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu Promises Better Service Delivery, Inspects Lagos Revenue House & Multi-agency Building.

In line with his administration’s determination to ensure prompt completion of the projects conceived by Lagos State Government, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has inspected the progress of work at Lagos Revenue House and Multi-agency Building at Alausa, assuring that the projects would be delivered by December 2020.

Speaking during an unscheduled visit to the two iconic structures, the governor expressed his administration’s determination to reduce the cost of governance and promote inter-communication among agencies through provision of sustainable office infrastructure for its workforce.

Sanwo-Olu explained that the projects were conceived by the state government out of the twin desire to scale down the incidental costs of premises rentals and accommodate most parastatals of the state within the vicinity of Lagos State’s secretariat.

The governor noted the need to accommodate the phased delivery of the projects so as to meet the delivery by December 2020.
