Lagos begins commercial water transportation, launches new speed boats

Lagos State Government has formally kicked off commercial waterways transportation, with the official launching of eight newly acquired speed boats by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday.

This is coming on the heels of the ban placed on commercial motorcycles and tricycles in most parts of the state by the government.

A Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Lagos State Governor on New Media, Jubril A. Gawat, shared some pictures from the event on his Twitter handle.

The event marked the commencement of commercial operations in waterways transportation by LagFerry, an Agency for Lagos State Government saddled with the responsibility of Public Transportation by water.

The governor also launched a mobile application designed to facilitate easy access to the water transportation services.

He observed that the commencement of commercial operations on waterways would promote a health living and restore aesthetics of environment through reduction of carbon emission.

Sanwo-Olu charged private investors to move in and harness opportunities in the value chain, noting that the Government had solved the teething problems associated with the mode of transportation and infrastructure.
