Lagos State Waterfront and Tourism Development Corporation.
Lagos State Ministry of Waterfront Infrastructure Development was created from the defunct Lagos State Waterfront and Tourism Corporation at the inception of Governor Babatunde Fashola's (SAN) Administration in June 2007.
Two separate ministries which include the Ministry of Waterfront and Infrastructure Development and the Ministry of Tourism Intergovernmental Relations were carved out of the defunct corporation.
The Creation of the ministry was necessitated by the administration's resolve to ensure that the development of shore-lines and Waterfront schemes are not limited only to Lagos Island as the case was when activities along the waterfronts were managed by the corporation.
In as much as the state is endowed with beautiful works of nature, the present administration remains committed to the provisions of quality infrastructural facilities for the development of the coastlines that spreads across all the divisions of the state.
Provisions of these facilities will not only help to curtail ocean surge and illegal activities along the waterfronts, it will also help to protect the environment and develop the state to a tourist haven to attract international tourist and observers.
The first to serve as the Honourable Commissioner for the Ministry of Waterfront Infrastructure Development is Prince Adesegun Oniru.
To create wealth through the provision of world class waterfront infrastructural facilities and services for all.
