Weed Takes Over Mile 2 Jetty, Months After Concession

By Ajibola Abayomi,

Three months after the Mile Two Jetty was expected to commence, TheLead Online can authoritatively report that the site had been outgrown with weed.

The jetty was expected to be rehabilitated under Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) business model as part of the Lagos state government’s integrated project to revamp water transportation and take some pressure off the roads.

At a ceremony in August to hand over the jetty to a private operator, the Chief Executive Officer of Lagferry, Mr Paul Kalejaiye, had revealed during the visit to Ilashe community that every necessary step had been taken and work would commence “anytime next week”.

According to Kalejaiye, Governor Ambode had approved that the jetty be turned into a world class facility, saying that there would be a shopping mall, a cinema and all live activities therein.

However when TheLead Online visited the site during the week, jetty was surrounded by weeds. An official of the company that won the concession explained that the failure of its bank to keep its word delayed the start of rehabilitation work.

The official who pleaded anonymity said he was not authorised to speak to the press explained that the bank which was to provide credit for the project was yet to honour the agreement signed.

“The problem is between us and the bank. Initially, before they concessioned this place, there was an agreement already between our company and the bank.

“But I believe the setback is only temporary. I think that work should commence latest in January 2017 as the grey areas are being ironed,” the official told Business and Maritime West Africa.

“In effect, the place will be ready six months from the day the jetty was handed over to our company,” he added.
