TechCabal editor Olanrewaju Odunowo told Ventureburn in statement last month that Lagos State Commissioner of Transport Frederic Oladeinde (pictured above) and Lagos State Waterways general manager Oluwadamilola Emmanuel will join a regulator session at the event.
Odunowo said the goal of the regulator session is to drive strong and open regulator conversations with the private sector.
He explained that during the session Oladeinde and Emmanuel will inform the public about their plans and proposed policies to improve transportation infrastructure available in Lagos State, as well as their plans to partner and or do business with the private sector.
Odunowo said other government officials from the Lagos State as well as policymakers at the national level will also be present.
Tomiwa Aladekomo, the CEO of Big Cabal Media, which publishes TechCabal, said the event comes at a time when there has been an explosion of activities in the transport sector.
“Our goal is to bring everyone into the same room to chart a path for success,”said Aladekomo.
