Lagos Smart City Project by sgd: 1:26pm On Jul 04, 2016
Kudos to the Lagos state government on the Lagos smart city project. What was the role of Nigerian town planners in the Lagos Smart City project? Politics is planning and planning is politics. I read it was an agreement with Dubai. This is a key issue because there are town planners in Nigeria that can do this project.

Good question. As an Urban Planner I believe the profession has come of age in Nigeria to take on projects of this magnitude.
The government however does not share the same view, most projects like these are given to foreign consultants. What the home based Planners do is just to supervise and monitor, even at that they don't really have any real power on such projects.
