The National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA), in conjunction with Simtop Ventures, has disclosed its plans to build a multimillion naira jetty in Badagry, Lagos State.
This was revealed by the Managing Director of NIWA, Dr. George Moghalu, on Monday 23rd November 2020, at the palace of the Akran of Badagry, His Royal Majesty De Wheno Aholu Menu Toyi 1.
Dr. George further stated that NIWA is doing everything in its power to improve the inland waterways, as there are a lot of economic benefits in the sector for Nigeria.
“I thank you for the support you have given to our partners in developing the waterways in Lagos State and Nigeria. Let us all do more to develop our waterways in order to take the pressure away from the road.
We are also very much concerned with safety and have taken measures to make sure that all our captains are qualified, well trained and licensed. No one will also be allowed onboard without wearing a life jacket. He added.
