The Lagos state government has said it would soon relocate the popular Computer Village from Ikeja, before the end of 2017.
The state commissioner for physical planning and urban development, Wasiu Anifowose said on Tuesday at the 2017 ministerial press briefing in Alausa, Ikeja.
Anifowose said that the relocation would reduce gridlock.
He said; “If at the end of this administration, the Computer Village is not moved from that Otigba Street in Ikeja to Katangua, I will not come here next year.
“It is a done deal; we have held a stakeholders’ meeting with the traders and they agreed to the relocation plan. It is an 11-year project that different administrations attempted to undertake but the present governor is a go getter.
“The relocation will deliver a world class computer and allied activities park. The process leading to the commencement of the development is in the concluding phase,”.
