Lagos to relocate Computer Village to Katangowa

The Lagos State government has restated plans to relocate the Computer Village from Ikeja to the ICT Park in Katangowa, Agbado/Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area of the state.
Special Adviser to the Governor on E-GIS and Planning Matters, Olajide Babatunde, in a chat with journalists, said: “We are trying to reorganize all our markets. I will give you an example. In Ikeja, we have a computer village. The computer village is being relocated.
“We are relocating them to Katangowa. It is not just the computer village alone. Other activities will happen in the Katangowa market.
“In the coming weeks, you will see government efforts in Katangowa. So, we are moving these people who seem to be on the road in Ikeja, also obstructing traffic, into a proper market big enough with all the services, including creches for their children, schools, playgrounds, mosques, churches, accommodation and hotel facilities, storage rooms, and warehouses.
“We are trying to do things properly. We are working on all of these things to make sure that we regenerate, redevelop, renovate, and conserve.
“Anything that we need to do in terms of the terminologies that we have in urban development will be put to play in Lagos in a way that you are going to have a greater Lagos.”
