SANWO-OLU IMPLORES INVESTORS TO EXPLORE POTENTIAL IN AQUACULTURE VALUE CHAIN.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has identified sustainable development of the State tourism potentials in aquaculture and its value chain as a driver for economic growth that will not only create jobs, contribute to poverty reduction but would also unleash opportunities for entrepreneurship.

The Governor who made this assertion in Lagos at the 2019 Lagos Seafood Festival, noted that there exists within the agricultural value chain the potential for increased production towards the attainment of the State’s food security objective, foreign exchange earnings from export and ultimately contribute to the growth of the State‘s GDP.

Represented by his Deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, the Governor pointed out that toward this end, the State Government has initiated several projects in the agricultural space to drive these objectives.

The Governor commended the organizers of the 2019 Seafood festival for the painstaking efforts put to ensure a successful celebration and hoped that next year’s edition would be bigger and more glorious.
