Water Transportation: Lagos Govt Assures Local Boats Manufacturers Of Patronage by Lanrelagboi: 9:24am On Nov 13
Lagos state government has assured local builders of boats that the state government would scale up their businesses by regularly patronising them in line with the vision of making water transportation one of the best possible alternatives.

In doing this, the state government is confident that the effort would help to strengthen the economies of local boats builders, attract more interest in water transportation and bring daily traffic congestion on our roads to a barest minimum.

The Managing Director, Lagos State Ferry Services (LAGFERRY), Hon Abdoulbaq Ladi-Balogun gave the assurances during an inspection tour of two major boat factories, V-Craft and Sierra Craft, in Lagos on Monday.

He stated that the Governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo Olu is fully committed to efficient water transportation system and has instructed that LAGFERRY must identify and patronise local builders who have the capacity and adhere to international standard best practices.

“We want to build the Eco system and ensure everybody is carried along in achieving the multi modal transportation initiative of the present administration to decongest the roads, so any manufacturer that has the capacity, we will patronise. We want to encourage local investors particularly those that have interest in water transportation and purchase the boats that are not just made in Nigeria but made in Lagos” he stated

While informing that the state government intends to roll out commercial ferry services in couple of weeks to come, the Managing Director assured Lagosians of a new experience in water transportation driven by latest technology and built on safety, reliability, faster with efficient services, comfort and value for money.

In his response, The Managing Director, sierra Craft, Mr Olusegun Jaji expressed delight at the interest of the state government in developing local water transportation, especially, the assurances given to local builders that they would enjoy government patronage.He added that he was particularly delighted in this administration’s commitment to improving and increasing water transportation.



He assured that his company was capable of producing and delivering world class boats capable of meeting the international standard as required by the State government.
He explained that his company and others were ready to key in to the vision of the present administration of exploring water transportation to decongest the road traffic.

We are going local in every aspect of our national life. But the politicians are the only hypocrites we have. If thay can all patronise our local universities and hospitals, we wouldn't be here a nation.

Sanwo Olu is trying to avoid the light railway if Sanwo olu does not complete the light railway he should just forget another term APC should just not contest again. Ministry of Transport didn't even bother to check how safe the boat is and some people are getting paid.

I wish every state could get it right.

So many states have water ways, all they use it for is fishing.
Re: Water Transportation: Lagos Govt Assures Local Boats Manufacturers Of Patronage by Angelfrost(m): 10:29am On Nov 13
Good move.... And, good luck to those intending to use this means...

Personally, I will rather take my chances with Lagos traffic. We should be thinking and talking about intra-city train stations.

I don't think that's entirely correct sir. In one forum, Hamzat has assured that the blue-light rail would be completed and put to use. Their former boss Fashola sef has even tasked them to ensure the completion of the light rail Ambobo abandoned.

Make the water ways safe, and dont encourage other modes of transport at the expense of our roads.

Nothing is cheap we are at the point of no return it has to be finished alot of people are complaining even foreigners are. I meet a businessman yesterday that was what he was complaining about. That they spent most of their time on the road traffic and dust everywhere.

Why is that boat having a window like that. It should be water tight like a plane. Look at the window it should be sealed. Where is safety board NASS spent time on Facebook law they forget about the main thing. I'm not condemning this but they need to make it proper safe just incase it turns people still have time to escape.
