President Bola Tinubu has left Lagos for Abuja, where he will oversee the inauguration of projects under the Federal Capital Territory Administration.

Departing from the Presidential Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos at 11:43 AM, President Tinubu was bid farewell by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, President Femi Gbajabiamila’s chief of staff, and other government officials.

During his recent visit to Lagos, the President inaugurated the 700-kilometer Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway, aiming to boost economic growth and development in rural areas. He also officially reopened the Third Mainland Bridge, the Apapa-Oworonshoki-Ojota Expressway, and initiated the restoration of 330 roads and bridges nationwide.

President Tinubu’s agenda in Abuja includes supervising the commissioning of various projects, including the southern Parkway connecting Christian Center to Ring Road One, named after him by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

On his one-year anniversary in power, May 29, 2024, President Tinubu plans to unveil the National Assembly Library Complex after participating in the National Assembly Dialogue Series. Following this, he will relaunch the commercialization of Abuja Light Rail, also known as Abuja Metro, and symbolically board the train heading into the city center.

After the train journey, Mr. Tinubu will officially inaugurate the Defence Intelligence Agency Headquarters and the Wuye Flyover-Link Bridge.
