Lagos to complete $1.65b Lekki seaport in 2019

Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has assured that ongoing construction works at the $1.6 billion Lekki seaport would be completed in 2019. Speaking recently at the formal unveiling of the office of Overseas Affairs, also known as Lagos Global, he said the seaport, on completion would be the deepest in sub-Saharan Africa. Represented at the ceremony by Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, Ambode said other projects that would get the attention of would-be investors in the state include the $1.3 billion Badagry Creek Industrial Park that will be completed in 2018 and the $12 billion Dangote Refinery and Petrochemical Park among others. He said his administration has resolved to prioritise the achievement of the four pillars of the Lagos State Development Plan (2012-2015) which include economic development, infrastructural development, social development and security, and sustainable environment. He said the Lagos Global is an initiative of his administration, designed to encourage ease of doing business and help to turn Lagos into Africa’s model megacity and global economic and financial hub that is safe, secure, functional and productive.
