Lagos struck another epochal cord in the annals of impressive development with this “Towards a Smart city” conference, an idea that was birthed to celebrate the state at 50; and indeed, if all the ideas, considerations, thoughts, visions and missions that were brewed in these two days of frank talk would be set in motion for implementation, a smart Lagos of smart people, smart services and smart institutions is on the horizon.
