While enjoining the Developer to cultivate harmonious relationship among all groups and interests in Katangowa, Salako emphasised that the Lagos State Government was hopeful that the project would birth on time for the people to start reaping its many benefits such as employment opportunities, economy of scale and decongestion of the Computer Village, Ikeja among others.
Recall that an ICT hub in Katangowa was embarked upon by the Lagos State Government to decongest the Computer Village, Ikeja and address challenges of growth.
