SWITZERLAND, OCTOBER 04 – For 45 minutes on Tuesday, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, explained the efforts of his administration in the last four months to bring about sustainable solution to traffic challenge in the State.
Beyond the ongoing rehabilitation of highways and arterial roads, Sanwo-olu said Lagos would be expanding the capacity of its water transportation and leveraging ICT to address the observed disorderliness in the mass transit system.
A six-kilometre wide metropolitan fibre optic cable to be laid across the city has already been approved by the Executive Council. Upon completion, it would deliver fast Internet broadband to all residents across the length and breadth of the State.
The project, which is expected to be delivered in four months, would be used to drive compliance with the State’s traffic laws as well as expand the capacities of its waterways, the Governor said.
The Governor was a guest at The Platform Nigeria, a yearly programme organised by the Covenant Christian Centre in Orile-Iganmu, Lagos. The church’s senior pastor, Poju Oyemade, coordinated the session.
Sanwo-Olu also cautioned those passing judgment on his four-month old government with a charge that the period was “too short” to measure the impact of the administration.
