Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has received the Certificate of Admission of the State as one of the 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) in the world pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation, saying that it was a starting point and a positive partnership that would help the State address the challenges of urban planning, transport gridlock, environment and modern infrastructure.
According to the Governor:
“Lagos is currently home to about 23 million inhabitants with an estimated 86 people moving into Lagos every hour. This creates challenges of managing a daily increase in human and vehicular movement.”
While alluding to the objective of his administration to make every community in Lagos economically liveable and stem rural-urban flight, the Governor assures that deliberate initiatives have been put in place to address the housing deficit, transport challenges and economic development, among others.
