Politics Lagos Governor, Ambode Hosts German President [See Photos]

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, has expressed the desire of his administration to partner with the Federal Republic of Germany in the areas of power, transport, technology and development finance to bring about a quantum leap in establishment and sustenance of businesses in the State.

Governor Ambode, who spoke yesterday, at Lagos House in Ikeja while playing host to the President of Germany, Mr. Joachim Gauck, said he was also favourably disposed to a sister-city relationship between Lagos, the economic capital of Nigeria and Frankfurt, the commercial hub in Germany, especially in the area of financial service sector.


He said Lagos, being a commercial hub and the fourth largest economy in Africa with a GDP that is bigger than those of 41 countries in the continent combined, and Frankfurt, a major economic hub in Europe should explore a working relationship in terms of massive financial service that would be mutually beneficial to the two cities.
