Lagos government announces Computer Village to be moved to Katangowa  



Plans to move  the Computer Village from Ikeja to the ICT Park in Katangowa, Agbado/Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area of Lagos state has been announced by the government.

Special Adviser to the governor on E-GIS and Planning Matters, Olajide Babatunde, made this known while speaking to journalists.

Babatunde said the new market would have facilities needed to cater to the needs of the market people as opposed to their current situation of mostly standing by the roadside.

 “We are trying to reorganise 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 next coming weeks, you will see government effort on 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 creche for their children, schools, playgrounds, mosques, churches, accommodation and hotel facilities, storage rooms, 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.”
