The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola inspected the newly constructed longest canopy walkway in the continent of Africa on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015.
Located at the Lekki Conservation Centre, a project of the Nigerian Conservation Foundation, the canopy walkway is about 401 metres long.
Funded by the Lagos State Government through the state Ministry of Tourism and Intergovernmental Relations, the walk way will soon be commissioned and opened to the tourists.
Governor Raji Fashola who with some members of his cabinet walked through the sky walkway said “this is a nice work. It's good to walk through, get close to the nature, get to the top of the trees, see monkeys and birds. This is the longest skywalk in the whole of Africa, beating the one in Kakum National Park in Ghana".
The Governor also inspected other newly constructed Eco-Park facilities at the Lekki Conservation Centre such as fish ponds, jungle gym, outdoor games, Gazebos and among others.
