The distribution of the Life Jackets, Safety Information Booklets and Fliers by the officials of the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) at Ipakodo-Ikorodu ferry terminal on Tuesday

In continuation of its Ember Months Safety Awareness and Sensitisation programme, officials of the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) were at Ipakodo-Ikorodu ferry terminal on Tuesday to distribute several life jackets of different sizes to passengers free of charge. 

According to the General Manager of LASWA, Mr. Damilola Emmanuel, the waterways safety campaign exercise, which began a few months ago, has taken place at various jetties and terminals across all zones on the State inland waterways.

Emmanuel added that the safety information booklets and fliers containing emergency numbers with passenger-safety guidelines translated into local languages were also given to ferry commuters to boost their confidence while using the waterways. 

“The distribution of life Jackets by LASWA to Boat Operators, riverine communities, school children and other waterways users in the State has always been part of the Lagos State Government’s efforts to improve waterways safety and encourage the use of water transportation while decongesting road traffic”, Emmanuel asserted.
