Lagos is a classic example of a fast-growing city, having transformed from a small farming and fishing village in the fifteenth century to a burgeoning megacity in 2010, when its population rose to over 10 million people.
Today, the face of Lagos is changing as a result of series of transformations effected by technology and a new style of governance. With a population of about 20 million, several innovations and developmental strides have been recorded. However despite the progress made, it is assumed that we are still scratching the surface of technology as the right policy to fully unlock the ecosystem still needs to be fashioned by the actors themselves.
In all, there is a clear understanding that in order to continue the pace of progress, technology must be brought to the centre stage.
