President Bola Tinubu has flagged off the 700 kilometre Lagos-Calabar Coastal highway

The ceremony took place in Victoria Island, Lagos, on Sunday.

The president was flanked by Senate President Godswill Akpabio, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos governor; Hope Uzodinma, Imo governor; Dapo Abiodun, Ogun governor; and Dave Umahi, minister of work.

The construction of the highway began in March. The first phase of the project, made up of 47.47 kilometres of dual carriageway, was awarded to Hitech Construction Company Ltd.

The project has generated a lot of controversies from the demolitions of structures in the beach and the allegations of lack of transparency in the award and project cost.

Speaking on Thursday during the 3rd stakeholders’ meeting, Umahi said the federal government will revert to the gazetted route within some kilometres of the Lagos-Calabar coastal highway project to save submarine cables.
