Sanwo-Olu launches 15 high-capacity boats

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday launched 15 high-capacity, locally fabricated boats to boost water transportation in the State.

According to Sanwo-Olu, this initiative not only enhances our waterways but also showcases our commitment to sustainable, efficient, and reliable transport options for all Lagosians.

These new ferries, fabricated in partnership with Caverton Marine, are designed to carry 40 passengers each, doubling the capacity of our existing vessels. This project marks the beginning of a new era in water transportation, offering a faster, cleaner, and more comfortable commute.
