Commissioner for Science and Technology, Mr. Hakeem Fahm, who disclosed the plan at ongoing ministerial press briefing held in Ikeja, yesterday, added that the provision would serve as another avenue for residents to enhance social activities.

He said: “We have provided free-wifi in three parks, Ndubuisi Kanu and Johnson, Jakande Tinubu Parks in Ikeja and Muri-Okunola part in Victoria Island.


Aside this, we will be providing free-wifi in public schools. “Also, we will be providing additional free-wifi acdcess at bus terminals and several parks and garden in the state. “The projects represent a quick win for the state government towards the vision of making Lagos a smart city,” the commissioner added.

According to him, Smart City, a comprehensive programme that seeks to provide a 24-hour driven economy which would allow companies to operate in a safe and secure environment thereby creating more jobs and increase Gross Domestic Product, GDP of the state.

However, Fahm hinted that no fewer than four million residents had been captured under ongoing Lagos State Resident Registration Agency, LASRRA.

The commissioner explained that information “gathered from the registration is use to embark on planning and allocation of resources in the state.” On effort to increase number captured, he stated that efforts had been strengthened to ensure more residents are registered.

The commissioner assured that plans to deploy additional 10,000 High Definition (HD) CCTV cameras across the State, to boost security, transportation and infrastructure in the state.

“The security component will deploy thousands of surveillance CCTV cameras through the length and breadth of the State.

The transportation component focuses on Intelligent Transport Service (ITS) and the connectivity component with provision of a metro fibre network through a major Internet Service Provider (IPS) that will eventually lead connectivity to various homes, offices and institutions in the State,” Fahm said.
