Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Saturday played host to Arsenal star Bukayo Saka at the State House in Marina.
Speaking on the visit, Sanwo-Olu, who is also an Arsenal fan, described Saka as his favourite player.
The governor said, “I also enjoyed receiving my own signed Saka Jersey.
“As a proud #Gunner, I’m incredibly proud of their inspiring run in the Premier League with such a young team.
“Their determination has motivated many and shown us the power of youth. We’re committed to bringing that same spirit to grassroots football in Lagos.
“Together, let’s create opportunities for our talented young players. Thank you for visiting me Bukayo and I look forward to next season.”
Saka arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday alongside popular UK-based Arsenal fan Kelechi Anyikude.
Saka was born to Nigerian parents in Ealing, England, which made him eligible to represent Nigeria’s national team but the winger opted to represent England’s Three Lions instead in international football.
