Mr Akeem Odusina, the Head of Public Affairs of LAGFERRY, confirmed this in a statement released in Lagos on Tuesday.

Odusina added that the company had increased the number of daily operating excursions to ports and jetties in the impacted areas.

Badore Terminal in Ajah, Ipakodo Terminal in Ikorodu, Five Cowries Terminal in Ikoyi, CMS/Victoria Island Terminal in Liverpool, Apapa, and Ilaje Bariga Terminal in Bariga are among of the terminals/jetties, according to him.

The LAGFERRY spokeswoman assured commuters that the terminals had secured adequate parking places while ensuring them of a safe, quick, dependable, and convenient experience on the waterways.

“LAGFERRY boats are state-of- the-art built, equipped with modern technology like free Wi-fi, onboard entertainment and they are monitored in real time to ensure passengers safety.

” All Passengers on all trips have insurance covers provided by a consortium of reputable Insurance Companies led by the Lagos State Assurance Company Ltd.

”The agency adheres strictly to all safety regulations, including compulsory wearing of life jackets and operating within regulated hours.
