Tinubu In Lagos To Flag Off Construction Of Lagos-Calabar Coastal Road

President Bola Tinubu has arrived in Lagos State to commission the Lagos-Calabar Superhighway, estimated to cost about N15 trillion.

The 700 km Lagos-Calabar coastal road is designed to connect Lagos to Cross River, passing through Ogun, Ondo, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, and Akwa Ibom states, before culminating in Cross River.

The project, which has caused some buildings to be demolished, has attracted a barrage of intense criticisms from many Nigerians who strongly felt that the timing of the project was wrong but Works Minister, Dave Umahi, said the project is in the best interest of Nigerians.

In a statement on Saturday, presidential spokesman, Bayo Onanuga, said the President will commission a number of projects to celebrate his one-year anniversary.
