One of Lagos’ private beaches is undergoing a face lift.
The Managing Director, Oniru Private Beach, Victoria Island,
Sola Oniru, said on Monday that the company has injected more than N55 milllion into revamping the beach.
Mr. Oniru said in Lagos that more development is on-going to make the beach an attractive centre for fun seekers. He described the on-going facelift of the beach as a step in repositioning Lagos as one of the most secured places for tourism to thrive.
“The sum of N15 million was recently spent to equip the beach with necessary facilities as part of the facelift,’’ Mr. Oniru said.
The beach director listed some of the facilities provided as maximum security, five more bars, one additional hall, two extra beach houses and more life guards.
“We have provided the necessary equipment to save lives, in case of emergency,” he said.
He advised government to revamp the Lekki Beach, so that it would serve as an additional tourist centre in the state that would fetch the government huge revenue.
“The tourism sector is a major player in growing the economy. We will ensure that Lagos becomes one of the most attractive tourist centres in the world,” he said.
“More facilities would still be put in place to make the beach more befitting for relaxation and more safety measures would be provided soon,’’ he said.
He commended the efforts of the state governor, Raji Fashola, for supporting growth in the tourism sector.
