Ehingbeti Lagos summit to hold Feb

Ehingbeti, the private sector-centred economic transformation conference will hold in February 2021 after it was postponed in November 2020.

The three-day summit, which will be a hybrid of virtual and live events, will draw participation from different sectors of the economy and across the globe.

Sam Egube, the Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget and Co-chair of the Steering Committee, said: “Deploying Ehingbeti as a recovery strategy from the shockwave of COVID-19 and as a socio-economic reinforcement tactic at this period in the history of our State is timely.”

While explaining the role of Ehingbeti 2021 in the Rebuild Lagos Agenda, “In the last two decades, Ehingbeti has played a pivotal role in the transformation of Lagos State, with useful inputs into the Lagos State Development Plans (LSDP)”.

“Our realities from 2000 when the first Ehingbeti held, exactly 21 years ago, have significantly changed. Now, we have to cater to the infrastructural needs of more than 22 million population and ensure that Lagos remains on the path of continuous growth”.

November last year, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu constituted an eight-man team led by the Chairman of Citibank Nigeria and Co-Chair of Ehingbeti, Mr. Olayemi Cardoso to coordinate recovery of Lagos State assets lost to the #EndSARS protest in October.
