The Lagos state government has reiterated plans to relocate the Computer Village from Ikeja to the ICT Park in Katangowa, Agbado/Oke-Odo local council development area.

Olajide Babatunde, special adviser to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, on E-GIS and planning matters, spoke on Saturday while briefing journalists. 

“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,” he said.

“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 in a proper way. We are working on all of these things to make sure that we regenerate, redevelop, renovate, 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.”

In April 2017, the Lagos government had said the Computer Village would be moved before the end of that year.

However, about seven years later, the plan had yet to materialise.
