"Valuing the past, striving for the best today and looking forward to a greater future"

The future of Lagos and Lagosians are at the core of our mission. What challenges do Lagosians want their government to give proirity? What issues do they want solutions to.


We bring together experts, researchers, innovators, and community leaders from diverse fields to collaborate on projects and initiatives that address issues such as transportation, healthcare, infrastructure, housing, education, technology, economy, tourism arts and culture, security and environmental sustainability.


Our team conducts rigorous research, data analysis, and policy formulation to develop practical and actionable recommendations that can inform government policies and programs.



As a movement, we pride ourselves in not just being another social initiative, but one that is determined to make a difference.


In addition to our research and advocacy work, we also engage in capacity-building activities such as training, mentoring, and networking to empower individuals and organizations to take action and make a positive impact in their communities. We believe that by working together, we can create a more equitable, resilient, and prosperous Lagos that benefits everyone.


We are inviting all Lagosians and friends of Lagos to join the movement for “A Greater Lagos” as we preserve the best of the past, strive for quality today and plan properly for the future.
