The opening of the first phase of the Eko Atlantic City which held in Lagos yesterday was as grand as it gets. Former US president Bill Clinton, President Goodluck Jonathan, Governor Fashola, Bola Tinubu and many top dignitaries attended the opening ceremony.
Eko Atlantic City is a planned district of Lagos that is being constructed on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean. Upon completion, the new island which is still under development is anticipating 400,000 residents and a daily flow of 250,000 commuters. The development will also have a positive environmental impact as its main purpose is to stop the erosion of the Lagos coastline.
