UNILAG to get floating jetty


Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved the request by the authorities of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) to float a jetty at the school’s waterfront to complement transportation on the campus. The Governor asked the school authorities to write a formal letter of request for immediate approval of the jetty, saying the Government would help the university to build capacity in water transportation.

Sanwo-Olu made the disclosure during his keynote speech at the International Week organised by the school. He said: “I just had a discussion with the Vice-Chancellor who informed me that the school needs a jetty to complement transportation within the campus. I have asked the authorities to formally make a request for immediate approval. “We are ready to do all that this required to ease transportation challenges for our people. Just last week, we unveiled a collaboration with Uber with the launch of Uber Boats. We will be adding another one before the end of the year.”

The Governor reiterated his pledge to make the State livable for residents. He said the Government would not rest on its oars in solving the current challenges facing the State. He said his administration was not folding its arms and watched the residents go through hardship in commuting within the city.

The Government, he pointed out, had started to address infrastructural challenges, with the commencement of massive road construction across the State. He pleaded for patience among residents, saying there would be a relief after the projects are completed.
