Lagos State Govt And Netherlands To Collaborate On Water Transportation by AutoJoshNG: 1:15pm On Jul 12


Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reiterated his administration’s commitment to collaborate with Netherlands on health, Education, technology, trade, tourism and infrastructure.

Governor Sanwo-Olu stated this while playing host to the team led by Netherlands Minister for Foreign Trade, Development and Cooperation, Mrs Sigrid Kaag who paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.

According to Governor Sanwo-Olu, there are investment opportunities in Lagos, adding that the state is home to all, emphasising that the environment is friendly for foreign investors.

he Governor thanked the team for the visit, and explained that Netherlands and Lagos share certain similar features such their locations below the sea level and technology which he said would assist in the bilateral arrangements to be discussed.

He explained the reclamation effort at Eko Atlantic City when he said “You know there is a new development being done at Eko Atlantic City. That is a city that is risen on top of water. It is actually an engineering that we are really proud of.

“With technology, you need to sand fill a lot of the place there, it went 12 meters down and has a height of about 9 meters up and that is twice the size of Victoria Island, we poured 10million cubic of sand to stabilize. It’s actually an engineering that we are really proud of,” Sanwo-Olu added.

On water transportation, Governor Sanwo-Olu noted the state is working hard on taking enough space in the waters for dredging to ensure safety when full blown aquatic traffic begins.

According to him, “We are doing a lot of reclamation to safeguard water safety, water transportation. I think these are some of the things we are dealing with to upscale our transport system.

“What I am trying to present is total transportation in all but for available resources. Water transportation is for us and of course, we need to complete our rail projects too so that we can have easy movement of our people from one part of the city to the other,” he added.

Netherlands Minister for Foreign Trade, Development and Cooperation, Mrs Kaag congratulated the Governor on his emergence praising his work ethic since assumption of office.

grin Invest in a vanity project? It was God who set the boundaries between the land and the oceans. Both are bound by nature to obey. But when humans pass their boundary, in time, nature will pass its boundary too. I just hope they won't trigger a tsunami in Lagos, because when it happens, the whole of Lagos will disappear under water forever. You're literally next to the 2nd biggest ocean in the world, and then what do you do, you begin fine him trouble. If the ocean vex finish ehn, you will know say na only God fit control am, no technology or juju can grin
