The Lagos State government has launched free public Wi-Fi at parks and gardens in its resolve to achieve its smart mega city status. Governor Akinwunmi Ambode said the provision of the free Wi-Fi was part of his administration’s effort to make the state work for all and sundry.
Represented by the state Commissioner for Science and Technology, Olufemi Odubiyi, the governor stressed that the increase in patronage of parks and gardens spread across the state has prompted the government to equip the centres with free Wi-Fi to serve the needs of visitors to the parks.
The launch of the initiative is part of activities to mark the fifty year anniversary of the creation of the state.
Chief Public Affairs Officer, Ministry of Science and Technology, Bolarinwa Yusuf, said that the governor urged the people of the state to make judicious use of the newly launched portal known as “Citizens Gate”, a platform designed by the government to bridge the communication gap between the citizens and the government.
