“For Prince Harry, it has been a very interesting and informative trip to the country. He has seen a lot. And part of the things we are hoping he will take away is the diversity and extent of how big our country is, how we continue to ensure that we live together in peace and harmony, and what role Lagos plays in the whole conversation.”

The Governor noted that while the couple had visited Kano State and the Federal Capital Territory, and now Lagos, “I’m sure they have their own experience of what Nigeria looks like. We have extended an additional invitation to them that they can always come back when they want to.”

Sanwo-Olu appreciated the couple for their work on mental health, saying, “Mental health issues are all around us. Denial and stigmatisation, are some of the things we talked about. And more importantly, at what point in Nigeria can we have the Invictus Games that Prince Harry is known for so that the true Nigerian competitiveness can also be reflected in those games?”
