TheFutureLagos is an initiative powered by a group of young Nigerians who are desperate for change in Nigeria as a whole with a bird’s eye view on Lagos. We believe that Lagos has the capacity, the ability, and the wherewithal to become a world class city. A leading business Centre with steady power supply, a top notch transportation system and roads free of traffic jams – We believe Lagos can truly become the City of our Dreams!
TheFutureLagos aims to interact with the public and notable personalities whose origin and place of residence is Lagos.
Our first interactive session is a dialogue with Hon. Abike Dabiri Erewa slated for the 14th September 2014. The session will have in attendance Toni Kan, Chude Jideonwo, Tolu Ogunlesi, Kathleen Ndongmo, Cheta Nwanze, Yemi Adamolekun, Akerele Hareef, Moderated by Kaylah Oniwo. Twitter users can join the dialogue session by tweeting with the hashtag #TheFutureLagos.
Lagos remains a reflection of the diversity and effervescent complexity of our nation; Nigeria. North, south, east and west all reside in this great city. From the early Monday morning blaring horns to the world renowned traffic jams, and unrivalled hustle spirit; Lagos remains a leading commercial hub in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, unparalleled in excitement and buzz.
Every Lagosian one way or the other has an idea of #TheFutureLagos i.e. where he/she sees Lagos in the next 5 or 10 years. It is hoped that by getting the entire residents of Lagos to collectively and clearly table their ideas and vision for the state, we can together build the Lagos of our Dreams.
We invite you to share your idea of #TheFutureLagos. Don’t just complain, speak! Air your opinions and Let your voice be heard!
