The ongoing reconstruction of the Lagos-Badagry road, when completed, will lead to upsurge of inbound tourists from West Coast destinations to Nigeria and greatly boost domestic tourism and its offerings.

He also said that, apart from tourism and travels, business transactions will be boosted as traders and buyers will carry out realtime trading at the various markets and platforms.

Nze Egboka described the recent intervention by the Lagos State government, which led to the resumption of work on the road as timely and a welcome relief, saying that the road is an important artery in the road network of West Africa, and should be kept in good shape for commuters.
