Smart City concept relies on data and data collection to simplify and improve the lives of individuals and to manage public services more efficiently. It can be organised into data stores, to enable officials and interested third parties to create new and innovative applications.
Smart City also mean better urban services, less waste, and citizens empowered to make a difference. This is about improving the lives of millions of Yaba residents, building a stronger society, and making better use of all her resources. ICT has a big role to play here. It can boost productivity, make services more efficient, and stimulate new ideas and innovations.
For this to happen we must understand how people, process, data, and things — play specific roles, and work together, to build a better Yaba in the future. Yaba needs to begin to engage with its citizens and promote digital economy innovation as well as bring her citizens together in an information marketplace.
