Sanwo-Olu Launches 15 Newly Acquired Ferryboats in Lekki

The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, commissioned fifteen (15) locally fabricated new ferryboats at Badore Ferry Terminal in the Lekki area of the state.

“Today, I’m proud to announce the launch of 15 high-capacity, locally fabricated boats, marking a significant step towards revolutionizing transportation in Lagos State,” the Governor said in a post on his verified social media handle.

Sanwo-Olu further said; “This initiative not only enhances our waterways but also showcases our commitment to sustainable, efficient, and reliable transport options for all Lagosians.

These new ferries, fabricated in partnership with Caverton Marine, are designed to carry 40 passengers each, doubling the capacity of our existing vessels. This project marks the beginning of a new era in water transportation, offering a faster, cleaner, and more comfortable commute.

The deployment of these ferries underscores our dedication to reducing traffic congestion and improving connectivity between communities. By saving hours lost in traffic, we are boosting economic prosperity and enhancing the quality of life for our residents.

This initiative aligns perfectly with our THEMES+ agenda, promoting pollution-free mobility and integrating an intermodal transportation system. The new ferries operate on the Cowry Card payment system, ensuring seamless and efficient service for all users.

We are not stopping here. An additional 25 high-capacity ferries will be fabricated in the second phase, further expanding our waterway routes and reducing turnaround times. These ferries are equipped with cutting-edge technology to ensure safety, comfort, and convenience for all passengers.

Our commitment to enhancing the Lagos transportation system is unwavering. With new patrol boats, a Search and Rescue Unit, and a floating clinic, we are ensuring that our waterways are safe and efficient.

Together, we are building a Lagos that thrives on innovation and sustainability.
