The commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, who spoke during the inauguration of the committee in Alausa recently, said that it became expedient to give Ibeju-Lekki a functional development plan, considering the economic potentials of the axis.

He explained that despite holding serious economic promises, Ibeju-Lekki was until now not covered by any development plan dedicated to its spatial and sectoral development but subsumed under Epe Master Plan and Lekki Comprehensive Master Plan, both of which paid little attention to the growth of the area.

” Given recent developments in the area, Ibeju-Lekki is obviously the emerging growth pole that is capable of catapulting Lagos State from 5th to the 2nd largest economy is sub- saharan Africa”, he said.

Salako noted that the Administration of Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu decided to pull out Ibeju-Lekki Model City Plan from Lekki Comprehensive Master Plan to proactively plan for the sustainable development of the axis over the next twenty years and forestall the abnormal situation of a plan having to chase development.

He enjoined members of the technical committee to work assiduously towards realising the objectives of preparing the plan, while urging them to make their experiences in the service count in form of meaningful inputs to the process.

He called on the consultants, MOA Planners Limited to live up to its billing by not leaving any stone unturned in delivering an enduring plan, amongst which is to realise the urgent need to incorporate in the plan excision layout for the various land-holding families in the area.

Speaking on behalf of the consultants, Tpl. Moses Ogunleye said that they were looking forward to working with members of the technical commmittee as credible information sources on their respective MDAs
