Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday, launched a purpose-built Warehouse and Showroom at the Boat Club in Lagos. The warehouse, which was built by Multimodal Transport Technologies Limited, will enable easy purchase of new spare parts for jetties and boats from the country.
Speaking for the Governor at the unveiling in Lagos, Permanent Secretary of Lagos Transport Ministry, Dr. Taiwo Salaam, said Nigeria would be next only to South Africa in West Africa to house a facility of this kind which will aid readily purchase of parts for jetties and boats.
He encouraged operators in the water transportation system to return to the Boat Club, housing the warehouse to purchase new and latest spare parts.
He also said maintenance services would be offered for jetty and boat operators in Lagos waterways, adding that the facility would help boost water transportation in the state which he said, was still at the lowest ebb, with only two percent of the 22 million residents of Lagos commuting through the waterways.
