Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State and his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu have signed a pact on the establishment of the Lagos-Ogun Joint Development Commission.

In his words, Gov Abiodun maintained that the official launch of the Joint Development Commission will initiate and accelerate more projects necessary to aid the movement of people, goods and services, as well as increase industrialization along border communities, to ensure wholesome development of the two states.

Abiodun stressed that the Joint Development Commission would forge a common alliance between the two states, to tackle insecurity, sanitation, traffic and transportation, waste management, water supply, land use planning, infrastructure development and maintenance, urban renewal and slum upgrading.

Abiodun added that the synergy would focus on revenue and taxation; trade and investment; resolution of boundary disputes; agriculture and food security among others.

“Again, I must thank my brother governor, His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his cooperation, enthusiasm and support for this initiative.

“If we jointly do this, there will be a kind of development that will continue to increase employment generation, poverty alleviation and food security”, he stated.

Speaking, Gov Sanwo-Olu disclosed that the emergence of Lagos as a megacity with a population of over 22 million people had made it expedient for greater synergy with Ogun and other states for sustainable socio-economic development.

He described the MoU as a “game-changer” that will transform the urban agglomeration that Lagos State has become.

“In light of current global practices in managing megacities, it has become obvious that the best way to accelerate socio-economic development in Lagos and Ogun States is by embracing a more collaborative approach for growth, development, and urban sustainability.

“The Joint Memorandum of Understanding is a sustainable development agenda under which Lagos and Ogun States will combine resources to meet our present socio-economic needs and prepare for the future.

“Our commitment to ensuring that Lagos becomes a 21st-century economy makes it imperative for us to strategically collaborate with our closest neighbour, Ogun State, for the joint development of our states, the continued growth of our cities and the co-creation of value that encompasses good governance and urban regeneration”. Sanwo-Olu stated.
