The Lagos State Government is courting stakeholders, especially those in the private sector on renewal of infrastructure to make the State a truly Smart City.
Addressing some of the stakeholders during a conference organised by the Lagos State Infrastructure, Maintenance and Regulatory Agency, LASIMRA, with the theme: ‘Lagos State Metro and Smart City Initiative: The Future of Technological Infrastructure”, Governor Sanwo-Olu hinted that his administration would not hesitate to take a cue from Singapore and other countries that use modern technology for massive infrastructure development, while also collaborating with the private sector.
The Governor who reiterated commitment to invest in technology, said it would help fast track the realization of a Lagos that works for all
“If Lagos is to sustain its Centre of Excellence status in the country, vital infrastructural development is critical to achieving human capital development. The economic impact that infrastructure improvement has on nation building cannot be over-emphasized,” he said.
The high point of the conference was the confirmation of the Mrs Abisoye Coker-Odusote as the substantive General Manager of LASIMRA by the Governor.
