Hilton Worldwide has announced the signing of a management agreement with a Nigerian firm, Quality Inspection & Testing Services Limited (QUITS), to open a 350-guestroom and suite hotel at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Nigeria.

The agreement, which was signed at AHIF 2016 in Rwanda, is set to open in 2023 and joins Hilton’s growing African portfolio of more than 80 properties trading or in the development pipeline, which will see Hilton more than double its presence across Africa in the next three to five years, said the hotel group in a statement yesterday.

“With a population of more than 16 million, Lagos is the seventh-fastest growing city in the world and the second largest in Africa, with much of the nation’s wealth and economic activities concentrated here,” said Patrick Fitzgibbon, Senior Vice-President, Development, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide.
