United States Approves $319 Milion For New Consulate In Eko Atlantic by NGpatriot: 4:15pm On Oct 06


The United States has approved a $319 million contract for the building of a new U.S. Consulate General in the Eko Atlantic, developed by South Energyx Nigeria Limited in collaboration with Lagos State.

In a report from the US Department of State on Tuesday, the 12.2-acre site for the new Consulate General would be handled by the awardee of the contract, Pernix Federal, LLC of Lombard, Illinois.

The contract was awarded by the US Department of State’s Capital Security Construction Program, known as the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations, which was established in 1999.


However, the design architect for the project is Ennead Architects of New York. The aim of the new Consulate General is to “provide a modern, resilient platform for diplomacy in Nigeria and is expected to be completed in 2027.”

Referring to the choice of Eko Atlantic, the report read, “The location will provide the future diplomatic campus and its neighbors with access to sustainable, modern infrastructure, including an 8.5 km seawall designed to protect the city from rising sea levels and coastal erosion.

Since its establishment, the OBO has completed up to 168 new diplomatic facilities and currently has more than 50 active projects, either in design or under construction worldwide.

Piglets go tell you tinubu did nothing in lagos. Yet they praise Peter obi to heaven. Years after tinubu left, lagos na highest for all economic and infrastructural indices even without oil. Yet Anambra is far from remarkable as regards to economic, infrastructure and anything good. Yet, baby pigs so say obi na messiah. Nawa o.

Very strategic move by the US. The new consulate will be close to the Atlantic Ocean, making it easy to move Americans via land or sea. It will also be close to the Africa Data Center located at Eko Atlantic, thereby easing the process of data creation, storage and sharing.

The US, like great strikers, don't go where the ball currently is, they go where the ball is headed.
