Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged architects and other relevant professionals to consider the underprivileged in planning for Nigeria’s infrastructure and building sustainable cities for the future.

Osinbajo urged them to see infrastructure planning as an opportunity to create a physical environment conducive for social mobility.

 “In building our cities, we must deliberately ensure that the benefits of becoming world-class cities accrue not only to wealthy individuals but across all strata of society.

 “A city cannot be considered world-class if it lacks a vibrant economy driven by qualitative infrastructure, functional social services and efficient urban governance that optimally deliver public goods,” he added.
