Slowly, the tenure of Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode’s government is winding down but he seems to be winding down in style and in a unique way by completing and commissioning some major works across the state.
The Lagos State Government did the handover of the newly constructed Bariga waterfront jetty. The jetty was surprised by the Ministry of Works, after its completion, they handed it over to Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA). LASWA will be in charge of the running, maintenance and day to day activities of the jetties, the ferries, boats, and the management. LASWA reports back to the state government in case of an emergency, funding or repairs.
According to the state government, The Ilaje Waterfront Jetty Terminal Project is another interesting project happening in Bariga that will catapult the community into the list of fast-growing suburb on the map of Lagos, Nigeria.
The construction of the jetty started in March 2018 and so far, it has been completed and ready for use.
