Lekki Conservation Centre Set to Reopen After Maintenance Works

The Lagos State Government has announced the reopening of the Lekki Conservation Centre on March 29, 2024, following the completion of maintenance work. This update comes after a period of extensive routine maintenance to ensure the facility’s optimal condition for public use.

According to a statement on the official website of the state government, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Tourism, Arts and Culture, Idris Aregbe, confirmed the reopening during a visit to the centre alongside ministry officials. Aregbe expressed satisfaction with the completion of repairs and renovations, including the walkway, and highlighted the accessibility of the centre for tourism activities during the upcoming Easter celebration.

In the statement, the Director-General of the Centre, Prof Mathew Onoja, acknowledged the state government’s intervention and swift response to address concerns raised in a viral video regarding the condition of the canopy walk bridge and other areas. The government’s proactive approach underscores its commitment to ensuring the safety and enjoyment of visitors to the conservation centre.

The decision to close the tourist destination for repairs was made in January following the circulation of the viral video depicting the deteriorating state of certain facilities. Despite the government’s assurance that repairs had been initiated before the video’s circulation, further routine maintenance was deemed necessary to enhance visitor experience and safety.
