The Lagos State Government, through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, has developed the Lagos State Off-Grid Electrification Strategy and Action Plan with support from the British-funded Africa Clean Energy Technical Assistance Facility (ACE-TAF).
The programme, which is being implemented by Tetra Tech International Development and funded by the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), is geared towards the improvement of the off-grid energy access in Lagos State.
Speaking during the formal handover ceremony on Monday at the Lagos State Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, the Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Engr. Olalere Odusote, explained that the Ministry was working tirelessly to improve energy access in the State.
He recalled that in 2021, the government developed the Lagos State Electricity Policy to articulate its vision for creating a viable sub-national electricity sector that caters fully to the needs of its citizens while also enabling significant socio-economic growth.
Odusote explained that with the emergence of the off-grid solar sector as an important component in achieving access to energy – for all – in the State, the Ministry has developed the Lagos State Off-Grid Electrification Strategy and Plan with the support of ACE-TAF to ensure the implementation of the Lagos State Electricity Policy on off-grid electrification.
Also speaking at the event, Mr. Chibuikem Agbaegbu, the ACE-TAF Nigeria Country Manager, expressed delight to see the successful collaboration with Lagos State Government in improving energy access to Lagosians.
He added that in 2021, AC-TAF had committed to supporting the State Government in improving the enabling environment for off-grid solar and has done so through its support in the development of the Lagos State Electricity Policy and the Lagos State Off-Grid Electrification Strategy and Action Plan.
Agbaegbu averred that the Off-Grid Electrification Strategy and Plan further underscore the State Government’s commitment to clean off-grid electrification, thereby enabling private sector investment in its off-grid electricity market.
Man Narrates how he almost missed out on KudiBenefits N5k Easy Loan
A Nigerian man has narrated how he almost missed out on KudiBenefits N5k Easy Loan.
How I Almost Missed Out On KudiBenefit N5k Easy Loan
Hear me out guys, I want to share something I stumbled on that shocked me. Ehen, and I’m sharing this because I almost missed out on it. I don’t even know why I gave it a try, but I did, and to be honest, it’s been really amazing.
I started my small business of selling phone accessories immediately after the lockdown and it was then that I realized that getting a loan in Nigeria ehn… it’s really something else, and as a guy man now, you wouldn’t want to be disturbing people for small change.
Anyway, I don’t know if I should call this one a loan or a giveaway because it’s fast, seamless, and I got my account credited in a matter of minutes. They have small requirements sha, but I got mine with just my phone number and BVN. I even told my sister to open an account just to see if the requirement would be different but mhen, it’s the same thing.
It’s like I’m talking too much. Don’t be angry. I’m just really excited that this thing works for someone like me who doesn’t like asking people for a quick raise.
Okay, just head over to www.kudibenefits.chat and on the side, fill in your phone number. The person that introduced me to it said the site is very secure and has no hassle and its’ been the same for me so far. They’ll send you a code and you’ll just dial the code. After that, put in your BVN and select create account. An account will be created for you immediately and guess what? No, guess now.
The created account will have automatic qualification to apply for a loan of up to N5k, once you buy airtime and send money as low as N300. On the same chat platform, simply tap on the loan feature button and fill in your personal and account details. In next to no time, the created account will be credited with N5k. How cool is that? You can withdraw the money at once or however you want. No kidding. E choke o!
Their customer care also told me that once I pay back the 5k loan within 30 days, I can get a higher amount.
This is the platform with the surest loan/giveaway at the moment. The Nigerian doubting Thomas in me almost made me miss it sha. E for pain me. I just said let me share. You can get yours here, i don’t want to hear that i have never done anything for you ooo!
Has anyone also tried it or is it only me? Please if you’ve tried it, share your experience. Let’s help another in these trying times.
Sanwo-Olu’s Effective Use Of Technology To Transform Businesses
… State Agency Organises Conference On Outdoor Advertising
By 2030, the smart city ambition of Lagos State would have been fully realised, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said on Thursday.
The Governor said his administration would continue to leverage technology to transform the State’s economy while easing impediments for businesses to flourish.
Sanwo-Olu said his administration had begun the implementation of the smart city plan with the rollout of 6,000km metro fibre optics, which is the requisite infrastructure for the smart city project. In the next nine years, the Governor said every residence, school and office in Lagos would have access to fast Internet connectivity.
Advanced technology and high bandwidth penetration, he said, would bring more prosperity to businesses and MSMEs operating in the State.
The Governor spoke at the 2021 Out-of-Home Advertising Conference and Exhibition organised by the Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA). The event was held at Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island.
Sanwo-Olu, represented by his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, said the State Government would provide supporting infrastructure and leverage data to enhance capacity of small and medium scale enterprises.
Speaking on the theme: “Road map for the Growth of Signage and Out-of-Home Advertisement post Covid-19 in Lagos,” Sanwo-Olu said his administration had started to address challenges impeding transformation of State into 21st century economy.
He said: “As a Government, we recognise that we have a role to play in creating enabling and regulatory environment for business to grow, while addressing the impact of the pandemic on business activity. Our focus is on pushing forward on our Smart City agenda to transform businesses, including marketing and advertising business.
“Technology is the current value of exchange globally and our smart city plan is predicted on this. We dream to become a Smart City of relevance and our main goal is to optimise city functions and promote economic growth while also improving the quality of the lives of our citizens. By using smart technologies and data analysis, we can properly plan based on predictions.
“We are making appreciable progress in the ongoing laying of metropolitan optic fibre, as well as the installation of smart cameras in strategic locations across the State. We believe that these two projects are critical to enhancing the ability of businesses to effectively operate. This technology will be supported by efficient and stronger bandwidth connectivity.”
Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Tunji Bello, said the conference would create a roadmap for the out-of-home advertising industry and foster effective collaboration with all stakeholders in the sector.
He said the conference had established the nexus between outdoor advertising and the Smart City plans of the State, stressing that the Governor’s T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda was designed to fundamentally transform the social and business environment.
“The outdoor advertising sector is witnessing unprecedented growth in diverse forms, particularly in the deployment of innovation and technology infrastructure which seemed almost impossible some twenty years ago. This conference and exhibition will further stimulate ideas that will benefit the outdoor advertising industry not only in Lagos, but nationally. Lagos will remain the hub for advertising business and we will continue to set standards in the sector,” Bello said.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA), Prince Adedamola Docemo, said the objective of the conference was to raise the confidence of stakeholders in the Sanwo-Olu administration as a public sector partner.
He said the agency would be rolling out policies and programmes that would improve sectoral investment, drive sustainable growth, encourage regular engagement and development of the State.
