Sanwo-Olu unveils Africa’s first Water Display Park in Lagos State


Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has unveiled a N6 billion Water Display Park in Makarios Luxury Place in Ibeju-Lekki.

A first of its kind in Africa, the Water Display Park was facilitated by Senior Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo of the Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC).

The unveiling ceremony, held on Sunday, was well attended by prominent Nigerians, media personalities, and foreign guests, all eager to witness the grand debut of the Makarios Water Display.

Mr Sanwo-Olu hailed the project as a testament to the power of imagination and innovation, emphasising its role in shaping Lagos into a dynamic and forward-thinking metropolis.

At the unveiling, the Lagos State governor said, “It is about the realisation of a dream and one daring to do things differently. When I was shown what is being put here today and Ashimolowo came to me, you don’t need to be further convinced that this is the power of imagination and bringing imagination to reality.

“The things that we see in other parts of the world, the inspiring landscape in other parts, are brought here. The least you can do is to acknowledge and appreciate it and to be a real enabler of those initiatives; as your governor, we are proud of this masterpiece this evening.

”The Lagos State governor pledged continued support for initiatives that push the boundaries of creativity and contribute to the city’s growth.

Mr Sanwo-Olu added, “Truly, for us, it is about enabling the greater things to happen. Lagos continues to be home for all of us, but Lagos is also a future we all aspire to.

Lagos is not only growing, but it is also a very resilient and forward-looking state; when we see investments from our citizens and foreign land coming to the city, we are always very encouraged to support the investment.

”The governor commended the brain behind the project, Mr Ashimolow, for putting Lagos at the forefront of development with laudable projects such as the Water Display Park, which would attract local and international investors into the state.
