Ikeja - All major beaches in Lagos State will soon be redeveloped into eco-tourism, Mr Ahamu Fadipe, the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Tourism and Intergovernmental Relations, has said.
Fadipe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Ikeja that the aim was to generate substantial revenue from the tourism potential of the state.
"One of the giant stride taken by the state government is the development of the bar beach into a gateway resort.
"The state government is also thinking of other beaches like Mayegun in Lekki, Eleko in Ibedu Lekki and Sunta beach in Badagry.
"We want a situation where we can make the beaches where people around the world will prefer as their tourism destination,’’ he said.
Fadipe said that the state government would do this by building adventure parks, hotels and zoological garden in the beaches.
Fadipe said that the project would be private sector driven.
