Fashola who spoke while receiving German Consul General, Mr. Michael Derus noted that when once people are well educated, they would acquire skills and the only thing they need is for them to be provided with the opportunity to put those skills to work and to be self-supporting.

He explained that the other pillar is the health care pillar which entails keeping those people who now have skills healthy and fit in a way that the assets value that they inherently represent to the development of society is fully optimized.

While speaking on the forthcoming Climate Change Summit which the Envoy promised to attend, the Governor said the focus is the business opportunity that are inherent now in the challenges of combating nature’s reaction and those are the businesses that will help first arrest the threat of nature and also generate a new economy for young people for a new generation.

“There would be a depth of ideas and suggestion and initiatives that should come through from the Summit. We can only expand the full width of the possibilities. And the Economic Summit which holds next month is really the icing on the cake really because it helps to set first our economic agenda to the investing public, to people at large and of course to the international community”.

“It gives them a clear idea of what route we would pursue. What we would be doing and it also helps us to report progress that we have made. So, it is a Summit that has come to earn its place as more than just a talk shop because the resolutions of every Summit are very scrupulously pursued and implemented by us as a government and they represent the signpost of the progress that you have alluded to that we have made here”, he explained.

Fashola reiterated that every time the State holds the Economic Summit and arrives at resolutions, it makes sure that it does its best to try and implement the resolutions and told the envoy that the doors of Lagos remain open to German businesses and global business concerns.

“This is the way it would be in an increasingly globalised world and I am sure that there are one or two things also that German business and communities will benefit from Nigerian initiatives and this must be for me, the spirit of partnership going forward”, he added.
