Waterfront Infrastructure Development

MISSION: To provide infrastructure and services at the Lagos State Waterfronts by harnessing resources to ensure well protected environment that is attractive to tourists and observers.


A first class Government Ministry for the development of effective and efficient State Waterfront Infrastructure in Africa.


The Ministry of Waterfront Infrastructure Development was created in June 2007 from the defunct Lagos State Waterfront & Tourism Development Corporation.This was pursuant to the Administration’s resolve to ensure rapid development of the waterfront and protection of shorelines across the State through the provision of requisite and world class infrastructure.

This has not only helped in curtailing ocean surges, flooding and illegal activities along the waterfront, it has also helped to promote a sustainable environment. In view of this, the Ministry has pursued vigorously this lofty dread by drawing inspiration from its mission and vision statement and ministerial responsibilities.
