The United States Consul-General in Lagos, Mr. John Bray, on Wednesday announced that the home government had secured about 1,000 hectares of land on the Eko Atlantic City in Lagos.

Bray disclosed this at his residence shortly after signing the engagement agreement between the U.S. Government officials and the Executive Chairman of South EnergyX Nigeria, Mr. Roland Chagdury.

The Consul-General said the decision to build a new Consulate in the Eko Atlantic City was to afford Nigerians better and more accessible services.

“This is another demonstration that the United States is committed to Nigeria and her citizens.

“What we currently have as a Consulate General was constructed in the ’70s.

“So, we have acquired a land in Eko Atlantic City to build a new Consulate, better and more accessible to Nigerians and others coming to visit for visas and other services,’’ he said.

Bray said the American government was proud to be participating in the Eko Atlantic City project, adding that the new Consulate would further strengthen the U.S./Nigeria relations.

The envoy, who said the Eko Atlantic City was selected for its world-class infrastructure, reiterated the Consulate’s commitment to working with Nigerians in providing opportunities for economic and development in Lagos.

Mr. Roland Chagdury, the Executive Chairman of South EnergyX Nigeria, said the U.S. government was welcome to the Eko Atlantic City.

Chagdury said that the confidence of the U.S. government in the Eko Atlantic City had reinforced the shared beliefs in the benefits that the city would bring to generations to come.

“We warmly welcome the government of the United States of America to the Eko Atlantic City.

“The signing of this agreement today signifies the dedication that the United States of America has always had for Nigeria,’’ he said.

Chagdury commended the Lagos State and the Federal governments for their continued support in making Eko Atlantic City a success.

Eko Atlantic is an entire new coastal city being built on Victoria Island, adjacent to Lagos, Nigeria.

The city is officially Nigeria’s international commerce city, which is a planned city of Lagos State, being constructed on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean.

It is a focal point for investors capitalising on rich development growth based on massive demand – and a gateway to emerging markets of the continent.

If you want a consulate that is more accessible to Nigerians, why not relocate to the Lagos mainland?

The money they have been raking from Visa applicants without giving them visa, they are putting it to use in our own land. Nigerian money actually paid for that place.

Using Nigerians money at the expenses of bad leadership in our country.

Keep enjoying it.

These people have business strategy, they know that Eko Atlantic is more attractive than where they are presently, this will now bring more customers (applicant).


They know people wants to have a view of how the Eko Atlantic look like.

God will punish all our former and present leaders.
