Techuncode Partners Impact Hub To Host A Conversation On Shaping The Future Of Governance With Technology Ahead Of EHINGBETI 2021

Ahead of its 8th Economic Summit – EHINGBETI 2021, the Lagos State Government in partnership with leading technology platform, Techuncode, wants to organise a preparatory Hub activation for interested participants.

The preparatory hub activation which also serves as a training medium will allow youths and young adults to address and collaboratively engage key arising matters in the society.

According to Techuncode, driving a conversation within smaller tech communities and hubs creates another opportunity for the government to interface with citizens and get solid feedback and opinions on pressing issues.  

These recommendations can subsequently form a critical aspect of the government’s response to those issues in time. Hence, the importance of this program.

While the activation program will be broken down into eight series, it will be hosted virtually by various tech communities and hubs across the State.

The series which is taking plays a few days ahead of the main Ehingbeti event (scheduled for 16th, 17th, and 18th of February) will feature seasoned speakers from different fields and works.

Themed “shaping the future of governance with technology”, this particular series will be hosted virtually by Impact Hub on Friday, 12th of February, 2021.

Keynote Speakers at the event include Kristin Wilson (Lead Strategist, Spurt Business Consulting), Patrick Eromosele (CEO, Impact Hub Lagos), and Isioma Udeozo (Previous Channel Lead, English Speaking West Africa, CISCO).

These seasoned speakers with notable backgrounds are all equipped with the right skill set to address the subject matter indepthly.

Commenting on the need to come up with the initiative, Techuncode GM, Arinola Gelor said that “We believe every tech community cluster in Lagos should be engaged towards the Ehingbeti Economic Summit as they form a major stakeholder in the economic development of Lagos State, so we decided to co- host this Activation event.

Techuncode also believes that the initiative is another way of mobilizing stakeholders within the industry with a greater purpose of achieving collectively, the “Lagos dream.”

Also supported by other corporate entities including Africa Tech Radio (ATR), Teksightedge Ltd., and Beyond Perception; the activation series promises to be an interesting one.

About Ehingbeti Economic Summit 2021

The annual Lagos State Economic Summit, popularly called EHINGBETI started in 2000. The summit began as an annual event and because of the importance attached to the Summit and its resolutions, it has changed from an annual Summit to a biennial Summit in order to give some time for the State Government to respond to commitments that she made. However, the summit was last held in 2014.

The Summit itself has a rich history and it is of even greater pleasure to note that it has been hosted continuously since the beginning of the millennium in the year 2000, and is now firmly established as a credible forum for the stimulation of economic growth in Lagos State.
