Gov Ambode Receives Canadian High Commissioner To Nigeria And Lauds Canadian Govt For It's Medical Support

Lagos State Government, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Thursday lauded the Canadian government for donating bio safety laboratory worth $3.25million (about N951.3million) to the State Government, saying that the gesture deserved to be commended.

Speaking at Epe while receiving the High Commissioner of Canada to Nigeria, Mr Christopher Thornley on a courtesy visit, the Governor also commended the Canadian government for partnering with the State Government in area of capacity building especially after the historic victory against Ebola outbreak in the State in 2014.

He assured that the State Government would continue to scale up issues relating to judicial and security sector reforms to ensure safety of lives and property and create an enabling environment for investors to come into Lagos which ultimately would bring about the growth of the economy.

Besides, Governor Ambode said his administration would take advantage of the Canadian Trade Office situated in Lagos to scale up investment opportunities and ensure easier business relationship.

Earlier, Thornley, who was accompanied by the Deputy High Commissioner in charge of Canadian Embassy in Lagos, Mr James Chrisoff, said the visit was to strengthen relationship between the Canadian government and Lagos State, especially to start dialogue on how to work together in key areas.

He also commended Governor Ambode for the solid infrastructures put in place in Epe and other parts of Lagos.
