The Future of Business in Lagos 

Our day begins with a visit to the Lekki Free Zone, the first private free trade zone in Nigeria and the largest in West Africa, covering about 155 square kilometres, designed as a special economic zone in Nigeria. It is designed to be the next frontier in the future of Lagos, even as Lagos continues to position itself as the leading hub for business in Africa. The Lekki Free Zone will have its own airport and deep-sea port.

 

We will also visit the Dangote Refinery, set to be the largest oil refinery in Africa, as well as the Dangote fertilizer and petrochemical plants.

 

Anchoring the visit to the future will be a visit to the Obafemi Awolowo Institute of Government and Public Policy, situated at the infamous Colonial Lekki Guest House, the former detention camp of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, a Nigerian nationalist and progressive stateman who played a key role in the Nigeria’s independence.

 

Lunch will be served, as a barbecue consisting of local flavours at the private beach.

We head back to the Nike Art Gallery, one of the most renowned galleries in Nigeria where guests will be able to view their latest art collections and be entertained by a cultural troupe, in which you can also join in!
