Structure and Responsibility

On 21 April 2011, LPLEL entered into a Concession Agreement with NPA for the rights to build and operate a deep-sea port in Ibeju Lekki, Nigeria. This Concession is granted under the Nigerian Ports Authority Act 2004. The Concession and the Nigerian Ports Authority Act 2004, form the legal and regulatory basis for the construction and operation of Lekki Port.

As LPLEL has ultimate responsibility under the Concession Agreement, it will manage the interfaces between NPA, the Lekki Port operations manager and the three industry specialist terminal operators.
