This initiative would kick-off at the Ndubuisi Kanu Park, Alausa, Ikeja and all other parks in Lagos state would follow suit.
In partnership with MainOne Cables, the free Wi-Fi at all parks is part of the Ambode administration’s effort to make Lagos a smart city. Commissioner for Science and Technology, Olufemi Odubiyi, said.
The Wi-Fi facility will enable Lagosians connect their computers, smart phones and other devices to the internet and communicate with one another while relaxing.
“The increased patronage of these facilities, which is no longer restricted to festive season, has made it necessary to equip these centres with free public Wi-Fi to serve the needs of visitors to these parks. As you relax and enjoy the services in these parks, we are also making it possible to access your mail, browse and search the Internet on your tablets, smart phones and laptops via a reliable public Wi-Fi,” Ambode stated.
He also implored everyone to embrace the “Gate Portal” which is a platform designed to bridge the communication gap between the citizens and the state government.
