The lodge would also be equipped and designed for landmark research too. According to the statement, the lodge would be open to both local and international visitors.

Commendation was given to the president, Muhammadu Buhari for his approval of the hand-over of the Presidential Lodge, Marina onto the Lagos State Government.

This was after a request by Governor Ambode who asked for the release of the property so as to transform Marina-Onikan area to a tourism and art centre.

Through a letter signed by the Chief of staff, Malam Abba Kyari, the president communicated his approval of the governor's request.

The statement read: "On behalf of the government and people of Lagos State, I wish to express our gratitude to President Buhari for his kind hand-over of the Presidential Lodge at Marina to the Lagos State Government. This, in my opinion, demonstrates the president's special interest in Lagos State which is in line with the promise he made in Lagos during the electioneering campaign. The promise is that the interest of Lagosians will always be paramount in his heart."

The presidential approval is coming on the heels of the approval of the State Executive Council that the old Lagos House in Marina be turned into Lagos History Centre. The old Lagos House is next to the Presidential Lodge, placing two cultural and historical monuments side by side if Lagos State follows through with their plans.
