Computer Village is a highly patronised market for a wide range of technology products, ranging from phones, laptops and other gadgets. It is presently situated in the Ikeja axis of Lagos, Nigeria and houses a wide number of workers and business owners.
The Lagos State government plans this move in order to control environmental degradation, housing stock deficit and traffic congestion in Ikeja axis.
The question remains, would the relocation of Computer Village guarantee a reduction in traffic congestion in Ikeja?
