The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said he would give an enabling environment to the technology sector if he wins in 2019.
Sanwo-Olu noted this over the weekend at a Digital Lagos event hosted by Vibranium Valley where he addressed tech community of start-ups, developers and tech innovators.
He said: ‘‘I’m aware that technology is the oil of today. Some ten years ago, the richest companies in the world were oil and energy giants, but the tide has changed.
“What we have today are technology companies dominating the global economic space. With technology, transparency and accountability in government become easier and possible.
“Technological innovations are helping social enterprise address social problems. Tech is accelerating SME evolutions and the impact of this is positive on the economy, which gives everyone a share of the prosperity created by this system.”
