Tourism: Lagos to replicate Dubai Marina in Badagry, Epe
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State yesterday disclosed plans to replicate the prestigious Dubai Marina in Badagry and Epe areas of the state.
Fielding questions from journalists shortly after inspecting on-going road projects in Epe, Ambode said the effort was geared towards harnessing the tourism potentials of the state.
He said the state government had decided to develop its tourist sites that could compete with the best in the world to boost its economic prosperity.
“The road (around the sites) will be dualized with about five meters of walkway to make it pedestrian friendly. The intention is to build a modern Marina that can compete with others worldwide. We have already incorporated some of the world Marina designs into the project,” Governor Ambode said, adding, “There might be some hotels and malls that will encourage 24-hour commercial activities. It will be mega terminal for water transportation.”
