His Excellency Governor Babatunde Fashola (SAN) was given a warm welcome when he attended a beach festival on the sands of Eko Atlantic, the essential new city for Lagos that is being built adjacent to Victoria Island.
The event, organised for the first time by the Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operative's drew a large crowd of partygoers who were entertained by popular musical and cultural performances. Guests were also able to savour the treasures of the sea from local fisherman who were on hand to display and sell their catch of the day.
It was also a first of its kind for Eko Atlantic whose developers and city planners provided the best of ocean views and calm waters for the festivities.
'This seafood festival will showcase the enormous opportunities and unlock the treasure box of 180 kilometres of Atlantic water, said Governor Fahola.
The Governor who is no stranger to Eko Atlantic delighted the crowds when he bought freshly caught fish.
'Eko Atlantic is a city that is already coming to life," said David Frame the Managing Director of Eko Atlantic. 'We hope that all Nigerians will be proud of what we are building today for tomorrow.'
