Lagos Central Business District commences compliance monitoring operations in Ikeja.
As part of efforts to ensure that Central Business Districts align with the original master plan, the Office of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts has commenced monitoring of the level of compliance with set standards within the Ikeja district.
The Pilot scheme which started on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, with the deployment of personnel to major areas within Alausa and Agidingbi axis to control traffic and discourage illegal parking was to ensure that government policies and laid down rules guiding the establishments of Central Business Districts are strictly observed.
Flagging off the Ikeja Axis operations, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts, Mr. Olarewaju Elegushi said the extension of CBD operations to Ikeja axis was long overdue as the State will not fold its hands and allow flagrant disobedience and distortion to the Ikeja CBD master plan.
While seeking the cooperation of business owners, visitors and residents of the Ikeja CBD in the management of the business district by operatives of the agency, he said the mission of the agency is to provide a stress free and conducive business environment for the benefit of shoppers, visitors and business owners through efficient and effective traffic and environmental management.

The Special Adviser said, “You will recall that the Lagos Central Business Districts Management Office was established to address the challenges of the maintenance of infrastructure and create a conducive business environment for the citizenry in five major areas designated as central business districts in the State. Since its creation, the office has concentrated its operations in the Lagos Island Central Business District. We are therefore flagging off the extension of operations to the Ikeja CBD today”.
“We will ensure that the much cherished international standard that characterised the existence of Central Business Districts in developed cities of the world operates in Ikeja CBD as we are ready to push our operatives beyond the limit to ensure fulfilment of set objectives”, he added.
