Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos will be relocated to Katangowa in Agbado / Oke-Odo Local Council Development, so as to make way for the Ikeja Model City Master Plan originally conceived to address infrastructural challenges in the capital city.
Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, made this revelation on Sunday saying that the action is in line with the desire by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to make Ikeja a model city.
His words: “The Ikeja Model City Master Plans designated the present Computer Village for residential use and government will adhere to the plans to make the area more organized, serene and habitable.”
He further explained that as a sign of the state government’s genuine commitment to the relocation of Computer Village from Ikeja to Katangowa, the take-off of the Katangowa project is already in its final stage of implementation, even as the government is working round the clock towards ensuring its speedy completion.
