A press release issued on the Lagos State official blog passed this information.
Sanwo-Olu reportedly toured Lagos Revenue House (formerly Elephant House) building consisting of four wings of seven floors plus a wing of eight floors and a Multi-Storey structure consisting of three blocks on a total area of site of 2.01 hectares dubbed the Multi Agency Building.

According to the Lagos Government, the visit tallies with Sanwo-Olu’s government determination to “ensure prompt completion of the projects conceived by Lagos State Government out of the twin desire to scale down the incidental costs of premises rentals and accommodate most parastatals of the state within the vicinity of the State’s secretariat”.
