Baring any last-minute ditch, the Federal Government will Thursday, formally transfer the historic State House, otherwise known as Presidential Lodge in Marina, Lagos Island, to the Lagos State Government.

President Muhammadu Buhari had, last year, approved the handover following  a request by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The President’s approval was earlier communicated in a letter signed by his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, to Governor Ambode.

In an earlier statement, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, said that Governor Ambode expressed heartfelt gratitude to the President for his kind gesture, magnanimity and “keen admiration for Lagos State as the Centre of Excellence that is well suited to becoming Africa’s foremost hub for arts, entertainment and tourism.”

The statement said that, with the presidential approval, Ambode has consequently unveiled plans to turn the erstwhile lodge to The Heritage Centre for Leadership, which would be redesigned and equipped as a landmark research and tourist arena that will be open to local and international visitors.

“On behalf of the government and people of Lagos State, I wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for his kind hand-over of the Presidential Lodge in Marina to the Lagos State government. This, in my opinion, demonstrates the President’s special interest in Lagos State, which is in line with the promise he made.”
