Address Delivered At The Unveiling Of The Black Pearl Tower

Address Delivered At The Unveiling Of The Black Pearl Tower

Today is a remarkable day in the history of Lagos State as the Eko Atlantic City gradually comes to life.


The Eko Atlantic City is one of the most anticipated projects in the history of Nigeria and Africa and I am happy to be here today at the official unveiling of the Eko Pearl Tower.


This property marks the official take-off of the Eko Atlantic City which is a big part of the changing face of Lagos and I can assure you that there is a lot more to come.


Eko Pearl Towers, the first residential development in Eko Atlantic City, is a set of high-rise buildings, privately owned & developed by the Eko Pearl Construction Company. I am told that the tower is a collection of deluxe two, three bedroom & penthouse type apartments with Sea & Marina views. As we can see, this is a magnificent pearl by all standards, and the new standard for property development in Lagos State.


Our government is embarking on many urbansation projects which, when completed will deliver a Lagos that will compete favourably with all the mega city-states of the world, one that we will all be proud of.


All these efforts will reposition Lagos State, putting it firmly on the international map as not just the financial, commercial and tourist hub of Africa but also to create employment and wealth for our people.


I congratulate the management of the Eko Atlantic City on this landmark occasion. This project is a clear example of the successful PPP, Public-Private Partnership, by the cooperation between Lagos State and The developer of Eko Atlantic City.


I urge other investors to take a cue from the management of the Eko Atlantic City. Lagos is the land of opportunities and many investment opportunities abound in transportation, entertainment and tourism. Our commitment is to create an environment where your investments are secure and profitable.


On that note, I officially unveil the Black Pearl Towers.

Thank you.

Lagos Police Restore Calm, Rescues 2-Day Old Baby

Lagos Police Restore Calm, Rescues 2-Day Old Baby

The Lagos State Police Command on Wednesday intervened to restore calm during a clash between two communities in Otodogbami area of Ikate, Lekki Phase 1, rescuing a two-day old baby in the process.

 A battle of supremacy of the area had triggered the clash between the Egun speaking community; mostly indigenes of Benin Republic and the Yoruba speaking community resulting in serious fighting and burning of houses. 

When contacted, Public Relation Officer of the State Command of the Nigerian Police, Dolapo Badmos confirmed the clash, saying that the police immediately moved into the area to prevent further breakdown of law and order. 

Giving a background of what transpired, she said, “There is an Egun community mainly made up of people from Republic of Benin. They actually occupy illegal shanties. We were alerted about the breakdown of law and order in the area and immediately went to check Otodogbami community, Ikate Lekki Phase 1, where there is a fight between the Benin- Yoruba communities fighting over the supremacy of the territory.

“It’s an illegal settlement area, most of the structures there are shanties and because of a protracted dispute between themselves, they set fire on their different shanties. The Police moved into the area to restore peace and in the process of checking the area, we discovered that there was a woman who was trapped in one of the shanties with a two-day old baby who would have been burnt in the process,” she said. 

She said the State Government has taken over the area while the State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development would move in to demolish the remaining shanties and clear the rubbles caused by the inferno. 

 “The Police is alive to its responsibility of ensuring the safety of lives and property of its citizenry and would not hesitate to carry out the necessary action where the need arises,” she said.  

Badmos also appealed to both factions in the community to remain lawful and shun acts of violence that could trigger civil unrest. 

Lagos State Government Commends President Muhammadu Buhari For Handing Over Lagos Presidential Lodge

Lagos State Government Commends President Muhammadu Buhari For Handing Over Lagos Presidential Lodge

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Sunday expressed a heartfelt gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the hand-over of the Presidential Lodge in Marina to the Lagos State Government.

The President’s gesture followed a request by Governor Ambode to have the presidential lodge released to the Lagos State Government in its bid to transform the Marina-Onikan axis into a world-class arts and tourism hub.

The President’s approval was communicated in a letter signed by his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, to Governor Ambode.

In a statement signed by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, Governor Ambode thanked the President for his kind gesture and magnanimity, saying the President’s large heart demonstrates his “keen admiration for Lagos State as the Centre of Excellence that is well suited to becoming Africa’s foremost hub for arts, entertainment and tourism.”

The statement said with the presidential approval, Governor Ambode has consequently unveiled plans to turn the erstwhile lodge to The Heritage Centre for Leadership, which would subsequently be redesigned and equipped as a landmark research and tourist arena that will be open to local and international visitors.

“On behalf of the government and people of Lagos State, I wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for his kind hand-over of the Presidential Lodge in Marina to the Lagos State government. This, in my opinion, demonstrates the President’s special interest in Lagos State, which is in line with the promise he made in Lagos during the electioneering campaign, that the interest of Lagosians will always be paramount in his heart”, Governor Ambode said.

It added that the President Buhari’s approval had come at a time that the old Lagos State House in Marina, which is next door to the Presidential Lodge, is also being prepared for a transformation to The Lagos History Centre, as a mark of honour to and celebration of all former governors of Lagos State, as well as for the benefit of humankind as a whole.

The State Executive Council has already approved the Lagos House Marina to be turned into Lagos History Centre for tourism purposes.

“With the handing over of the Presidential Lodge to Lagos State, the Lagos State Government will begin a process that will transform the whole area into a culture zone in the next two to three years that every Lagosian will be proud of. These two buildings will be nurtured as world-class monuments by the Lagos State Government to compliment the ongoing larger plan that aims to transform the Marina-Onikan axis into a multi-sectorial culture zone,” the Governor said.

The statement added that the Governor’s plan for Marina-Onikan culture zone includes a skywalk that would connect Marina all the way to the Freedom Park on Broad Street in order to offer the ultimate view of the  ‘culture arcade’ that will emerge between Marina and Broad Street and the entire zone to tourists and local visitors.

In addition, Governor Ambode said the axis would also accommodate a Tourist Welcome Centre that comprises of a multi layer car park, mall, Lagos Aquarium Centre and other tourist facilities.
