Governor Sanwo-Olu also restated his administration’s commitment to strengthening the creative industry and even wrote on X (formerly Twitter)

At #LagosFashionWeek 2023, I stood proudly in the heart of a city that’s the epicentre of art, culture, and expression. Lagos is where creativity thrives. We continue to support this vibrant community because we believe in its power to transform our city and our economy.

Closing the Emmy Kasbit show yesterday, I’m reminded of how creativity isn’t just about fashion; it’s an economic force.

He added that the state will invest more in developing and promoting her creative minds, seeing that the industry is set to providing more job opportunities and adding significantly to the state’s Gross Domestic Product.
