Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday begin a two-day official visit to Lagos State, the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy.
According to Bamigbetan, the President will, during the course of his visit, carry out some groundbreaking ceremonies and inspect some ongoing projects in the State.
He said the President, on arrival, will attend the Colloquium organized to mark the 66th Birthday of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu scheduled to hold at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos on Thursday.
He added that the President would perform the official flag-off ceremony for the construction of the Lekki Deep Sea Port project, Ibeju Lekki.
Bamigbetan said on completion, the multi-purpose Lekki Deep Sea Port, located at the heart of the Lekki Free Trade Zone, would be one of the most modern ports in West Africa, offering enormous support to the growing commercial operation across Nigeria and the entire West African region.
He said the President would also inspect the ongoing construction works at the Eko Atlantic City, Victoria Island.
He further said that the Eko Atlantic City Project, a planned city being constructed on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean, is projected to accommodate at least 250,000 residents and a daily flow of 150,000 commuters, adding that the development will also have a positive environmental impact, as it will help in stopping the erosion of the State’s coastline.
The Commissioner said the President would also commission the Ikeja Bus Terminal, expected to commute over 100,000 residents across 23 bus routes in the State.
