Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Thursday met with representatives of APM Terminals to advance the development of the Badagry Deep Sea Port project, restating his administration’s key strategic imperative to creating a friendly environment to encourage private sector participation in driving economic development in the state.

Governor Ambode at the meeting which took place in London, United Kingdom, said the Badagry Deep Sea Port Project with an estimated investment of over $2.3 billion would address the infrastructure enhancement and urban renewal agenda of the State.
Governor Ambode, who expressed appreciation on the resolve of the investors to stay the course with the project, said the facility on completion would generate over 500,000 direct and indirect jobs.
He assured that the State Government would spare nothing to see the project to realization, while pledging that the interests of the host communities within the location of the project will be protected.
‎He said the Badagry Deep Sea Port, on completion, will be the biggest in the African continent as it is expected to sit on a land space of over 1,000 hectares.
Speaking on behalf of APM Terminals, Head of Africa, Mr. Peter Volkjaer Jorgensen, said the Group was strongly committed to partnering the State Government on the project.
