As part of efforts to ease the process of shopping in Lagos Island markets, the Lagos State Government through the Office of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts has launched a web-based electronic business guide.
At a public display and launching of the electronic business directory, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts, Mr. Agboola Dabiri said the present administration was exploring the advantage of technology to ease the process of doing business in the ever populated Lagos Island markets.
He said that with the launch of the electronic business guide, shoppers would no longer have to drive from one shop to another searching for goods or services on Lagos Island as they could easily log on to the website and contact dealers of their desired goods from their phones, laptops or desktops.
Dabiri disclosed that the launch of the electronic business guide was one of the requirements of being a member of the International Downtown Association to which Lagos Central Business District subscribes.
“The Lagos CBD is a member of the International Downtown Association and as a member, you are required to develop an electronic business guide to ease doing business in the districts,” he explained.
The Special Adviser said people could now search for products and services from their comfort zones by logging on to www. Lagoscbdguide.com.ng. to use the product which is free, convenient and easy to use by anyone with a smartphone.
“Coming to do business in Lagos Island markets sometimes could be frustrating because of the large volume of crowd we face daily. Most people are discouraged to come to the Lagos Island markets just because of this singular frustrating crowd and the traffic issues associated with it. But today, with the launching of this business guide, shoppers and consumers with a click on the buttons of their laptops, phones and desktops can search for their desired goods and services at the comfort of their homes,” Dabiri said.
