New Consul-General of the United States (U.S.) Consulate in Lagos, Ms. Claire Pierangelo yesterday promised to collaborate with the Lagos State government on areas of mutual interest.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Pierangelo said the visit was to strengthen the working relationship with the state government since Lagos has been a long-standing partner.

She said the visit was the first official call on any Nigerian public officer since she arrived in Nigeria.

The new envoy assumed duty on May 29, 2019, succeeding John F. Bray as Consul-General.

Responding, Sanwo-Olu said Lagos and the U.S. Consulate shared a long history of collaborations that have been beneficial to both parties.

He said his administration would welcome any plan that would further improve the partnership between the state and the American government.
