Lagos State Signs Historic Smart City Deal with Dubai (PHOTO)


The partnership that will see Lagos emerge as the first Smart City in Africa, was signed yesterday in Dubai. A Smart City is a growing concept that draws from the success of Dubai’s innovative knowledge-based industry clusters to empower business growth for companies and knowledge workers all over the world.

A statement released today, said: "The Smart City (Lagos) is expected to bring multi-billion dollars investments to Lagos, create several thousands of jobs and transform the Ibeju-Lekki axis in particular and the entire Lagos State in general.

A smart-city Lagos will be the pride of all Lagosians just as we have smart city Dubai, Smart-City Malta and Smart-City Kochi (India). The project would also become the world’s first carbon neutral city. Lagos will become an important centre for innovations in smart technologies, wellness and destination for green tourism.”

When completed, the Smart City Lagos will have, among other features: a 12-lane road, hotel resorts, world-class technological education facilities, a rail metroline, to mention but a few.
