In preparation for the Lagos State Economic Summit- EHINGBETI, the state government is teaming up with a digital tech media platform known as Techuncode and a number of hubs in the state to host conversations in smaller communities around issues relating to the #ForAGreaterLagos agenda.
Having niche conversations within small communities creates another opportunity for the government to interface with citizens and get solid feedback and opinions on pressing issues. These recommendations can form a critical aspect of the government’s response to those issues in time. Hence, the importance of this program.
In order to ensure that interested parties can participate and lend their voices to the discourse, the program has been split into series and distributed among 8 different hubs in Lagos. Interested parties can join the discussion in any of the hubs.
The pandemic has proven that health threats can have serious crippling effects on the economy. This reflects the need to have this conversation and map out a plan for reinforcing the health sector within Lagos State.
Keynote speakers at the event include Dr Wale Adeosun (CEO, Wellvis), Josh Okpata (Venture Partner, MEST Africa), Adaorah Momodu (Co-founder and COO, Oncopadi), and Emmanuel Osinaike (Physiotherapist, NOHIL).
These speakers boast of vast experience in their respective fields and are more than willing to treat the subject matter comprehensively.
Attendance for the discussion is open to all without any cost attached. However, interested parties must first reserve their seats at the event online.
Commenting on the upcoming hub discussion, Techuncode General Manager Arinola Gelor said, “We believe that every tech community has a significant role to play in the state’s reform. This is why we have decided to co-host this event with selected tech hubs within Lagos State. ”
“Our goal is to come out of each discourse with specific and realistic recommendations that’d aid investment in technology within Lagos State and ultimately promote the #ForAGreaterLagos agenda,” she added.
With Ehingbeti only a few days away, this event will help to warm up attendees for the all-inclusive summit. This year, EHINGBETI will be held as a virtual event. Hence, viewers can participate from the comfort of their homes.
