Sleiman, who paid a brief visit to the project being bankrolled by his country-men, said he was impressed by the scope of work. He described the job as a beacon of better things to come in Nigeria.
Speaking after unveiling the plaque in his honour at the Eko Atlantic City site, Sleiman said Lebanon and Nigeria have formed a partnership that is beneficial to both countries.
Managing Director of Eko Atlantic City Limited, Mr David Frame, said President Sleiman, who was on tour of many African countries, was delighted to visit Nigeria, especially Lagos, to have a first-hand experience of the contribution of Lebanese living in Nigeria.
“The President of Lebanon is happy with what the Lebanese community is doing in Nigeria. He is happy that we are contributing to the development of Nigeria, a country that is a second home to many of us,” said Frame, adding that Lebanese will continue to seek the progress and peace of Nigeria.
