Lagos now boasts of two wifi spots powered by the state government, which provides Internet access to the public as it is now possible to access emails, browse and search the internet for free on tablets, smart phones and laptops via the reliable public Wi-Fi at the parks.
Our correspondent gathered that the free Wi-Fi spots are located at Ndubuisi Kanu Park Alausa, Ikeja and Muri-Okunola Park in Victoria Island. The government also plans to extend the free internet to other parks and gardens of the state to further enhance social and leisure activities.
Two weeks ago in commemoration of 50the anniversary of the creation of the state, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode inaugurated the Ndubuisi Kanu free WiFi spot and followed it with the latest installation at the Muri-Okunola Park.
The government believes the free Internet provision will make the people of Lagos more informed about what is happening around the world and Nigeria in particular.
The parks and gardens were established to provide conducive environment for recreation and relaxation activities for Lagosians to relax and enjoy the recreational facilities in these parks.
According to the governor, “One cannot underestimate the importance of internet access in our daily activities, as this is an enabler in modern society and the efforts of this administration in providing free Wi-Fi is to make the state work for all and sundry.”
