The United States Consul-General in Lagos, Mr. John Bray, on Wednesday announced that the home government had secured about 1,000 hectares of land on the Eko Atlantic City in Lagos.

Bray disclosed this at his residence shortly after signing the engagement agreement between the U.S. Government officials and the Executive Chairman of South EnergyX Nigeria, Mr. Roland Chagdury.

The Consul-General said the decision to build a new Consulate in the Eko Atlantic City was to afford Nigerians better and more accessible services.

“This is another demonstration that the United States is committed toNigeria and her citizens.

“What we currently have as a Consulate General was constructed in the ’70s.

“So, we have acquired a land in Eko Atlantic City to build a new Consulate, better and more accessible to Nigerians and others coming tovisit for visas and other services,” he said.

Bray said the American government was proud to be participating in the Eko Atlantic City project, adding that the new Consulate would further strengthen the U.S./Nigeria relations.

The envoy, who said the Eko Atlantic City was selected for its world-classinfrastructure, reiterated the Consulate’s commitment to working withNigerians in providing opportunities for economic and development inLagos.

Chagdury said that the confidence of the U.S. government in the Eko Atlantic City had reinforced the shared beliefs in the benefits that the city would bring to generations to come.

“We warmly welcome the government of the United States of America to the Eko Atlantic City.

“The signing of this agreement today signifies the dedication that the United States of America has always had for Nigeria,” he said.

Chagdury commended the Lagos State and the Federal governments for their continued support in making Eko Atlantic City asuccess.

Eko Atlantic is an entire new coastal city being built on Victoria Island, adjacent to Lagos, Nigeria.
