As part of a comprehensive vision to transform Lagos into the model mega-city in Africa, Governor Babatunde Fashola yesterday declared open the second stakeholders’ forum on digital mapping, Geographic Information System (GIS) in the state.

Fashola, who led other members of the State Executive Council at the forum held at the state Secretariat Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja, described GIS as a total life change that is capable of confronting the challenges of emerging planets.

As part of efforts to smoothen the process of land administration in Lagos State, the governor explained that the programme aimed at creating wealth by awakening dead assets through a series of initiatives to give an identity to every inch of real estate in Lagos.
