The Federal Government has disclosed that it will pay N2.75 billion today (Wednesday) as compensation to those whose properties are located on the right of way of the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway project.

According to the Minister of Works, David Umahi, the compensation payments are expected to continue in the coming days. This announcement comes after public outcry and appeals from property owners, such as Landmark Beach, to reroute the road to avoid demolition of their properties.

Despite these appeals, the Federal Government had recently begun the demolition of properties affected by the right of way on the coastal road construction. Landmark Africa, the parent company of Landmark Beach, has expressed dismay over the demolition of some parts of the beach, stating, “What a journey! What we built in 6 years was destroyed in 6 hours.”

The 700-kilometer coastal road project connects nine states, with two spurs leading up north. The government’s decision to provide compensation to affected property owners is a step towards addressing the concerns raised by the public and ensuring a more inclusive and sustainable infrastructure development.
