The Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, revealed yesterday that the state had obtained approval for the building of a port in Badagry to decongest Apapa and Tin Can.
The governor expressed the hope that with the collaboration of investors, the Badagry port should be delivered “in two years or so.”
Sanwo-Olu disclosed this while receiving the acting Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Mr Adewale Adeniyi, and a delegation of the NCS who paid him a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Marina, yesterday.
The governor, who expressed delight that operations had gradually begun at the Lekki Deep Seaport after its inauguration some months ago, stressed that the state government had resolved to build more ports in the state.
Earlier, the acting NCS CG, who appreciated the Lagos State Government for creating a conducive environment for the agency’s operations, pledged Customs’ respect for the rule of law.
