Okonjo-Iweala, Mo Ibrahim, Adesina slated to speak at the Ehingbeti summit that opens on Tuesday

Notable business leaders and political figures across the globe will be joining the private sector in setting agenda for Lagos State towards the next decade at ‘Ehingbeti’, the Lagos Economic Summit. 

Ehingbeti is an ingenuous socio-economic apparatus that had contributed significantly to the evolution of Lagos State into a major economy in sub-Saharan Africa and an admirable megacity, with expanding potentials.

With the theme ‘For a greater Lagos: Setting the tone for the next decade’, Ehingbeti 2021 had drawn about 150 speakers from across the world to discuss and deliberate on pragmatic optimisation of the inherent opportunities in Africa’s 5th largest economy.

The summit offers perspectives on how to manage the peculiar socio-economic landscape of Lagos State in the coming decade.

The Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget and Co-Chair of Ehingbeti, Sam Egube, said, “Our realities from 2000 when the first Ehingbeti held, exactly 20 years ago, have significantly changed.

As a public-private sector summit that started as a collaborative effort between Lagos State Government and Business Club Ikeja, Ehingbeti had been hosted by successive governments in Lagos State since the beginning of the 4th republic.
