In an announcement made on his Instagram page on Sunday, May 28, 2023, Governor Sanwo-Olu shared the unveiling of the portrait.

The new portrait, intended to be displayed in all government and non-government offices throughout the State starting from May 29, 2023, depicts Sanwo-Olu wearing a traditional white Agbada. Accompanied by a carton brown handmade cap with blue stripes, this attire has become his recognizable brand identity.

Sanwo-Olu expressed, “My new official portrait, taken by my official photographer, Ademola Olaniran has been released. This new portrait takes precedence over the previous one where I was garbed in a blue suit, white shirt, and blue tie. All government and non-government institutions should kindly take note of the change. Thank you and God bless.”
