Following the support promised by Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu during the courtesy visit of the Super Eagles of Nigeria to him at the Lagos House, Marina on Wednesday, the Lagos State Government has commuted the team to the Republic of Benin for the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifying match against the Squirrels slated for Saturday, 27th March, 2021, through the waterways.

Speaking during their boarding at the Five Cowries Terminal, Falomo-Ikoyi, on Friday, the Managing Director, Lagos Ferry Services, Hon. Abdoulbaq Ladi Balogun expressed delight that the team is being conveyed through the waterways saying its a testimony to the huge investment made by the present admnistration of Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make water transportation desirable and a viable alternative to road.

“Its a good one for our brand and a good one for Lagos state.We are excited to take super eagles for their international match in far away Benin Republic; this is the first time it’s going to happen that they are going by water and we are glad to be part of history”

Balogun explained that Lagos State is trying all its best to boost water transportation and promote tourism saying the eyes of all Nigerians and the world are here showing them the potentials of water transportation and water tourism in Lagos State.

“Mr. Governor, since inception has shown much passion to developing the water transportation system in Lagos State. As a mega city we can not afford to travel on the road alone, we have to seek other ways of diversifying the mode of transportation and waterway is readily available and a huge investment is being made by the present administration and that is what we are demonstrating to the Super Eagles, to Nigeria and to the entire world today”.

He assured that adequate security have been put in place to ensure a safe journey, faster and reliable. With adequate presence of Marine Police, CTU and Naval Personnel going with us on escorts with the players and the officers.

He disclosed further that the choice of LAGFERRY is predicated on its state of the art boats that are fully equipped with modern technology like free wifi, onboard entertaiment, its enviable safety records, being able to be monitored real time to ensure passenger safety and having experienced and regularly trained captains and deckhands.

“All our Passengers are insured and we adhere strictly to all safety regulations of compulsory wearing of life jackets by all passengers before boarding and operating within the stipulated time, among other things” he stated

Recall that Governor Sanwo-Olu had charged the team to victory against their opponent and also redeemed the gift promised to a Football Gold Medalist in Atlanta 96, Patrick Pascal, by giving him a new three bedroom apartment in the 360 units Prince Abiodun Ogunleye Housing Estate in Igbogbo, Ikorodu.

We have arrived in Porto Novo. We also had our mandatory Covid test done at the point of entry.
We've settled in and lodged at the Golden Tulip Le Diplomat Hotel in Cotonou.

This whole waterway traveling is sooo messy and dangerous considering all that can happen that it shouldn't be tried again. This is what happens when you don't have a tough captain. If it was when Stephen Keshi was the captain of super eagles or even Sunday Oliseh, this won't happen. Not a single jet to fly these guys to Cotonou in less than an hour? What if there was a pirate attack or mishap? Imagine the public relations nightmare that would have been for this seemingly shameless country? And how is it that an institution as big as the FA of a country like Nigeria is always complaining of funds, inspite of all the business opportunities available for the marketing department? This is what happens when you have rectangular pegs in horizontal holes..
