Commissioners for transportation in the country of Nigeria, and critical stakeholders in the transport sector would gather in Lagos State, next month to deliberate on how technology can be deployed to tackle some of the challenges in the sector, including maximising the revenue potential.

 
The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who said this at a briefing, stated that the two-day event slated for June 7 and 8, 2022, is the maiden edition of the National Transport Technology Conference and Exhibition (NTTCE) that would be hosted by Lagos State government, and would feature transport technology and investment opportunities in line with world best practice.
   
The commissioner affirmed that key decision-makers, experts and operators in the road, rail, water and air transport sectors will be in attendance to discuss current and emerging trends in the smart transportation infrastructure in order to adopt and implement these emerging trends in the Nigerian transportation space. 
   
Oladeinde further explained that deliberations would also be geared towards improving the efficiency and sustainability of transport technology solutions in Nigeria, adding that other tropical issues will be clearly highlighted including traffic congestion, parking problems and environmental pollution, which will be critically analysed at the event. 
 
 
He stated that leading manufacturers and providers of transport technology solutions would showcase their latest future-proved transport technology solutions at this first-of-its-kind transport fair, as well as a gala and industry award night to wrap up the two-day event. 
   
The Executive Secretary, Nigeria Transportation Commissioners Forum, Mrs. Chinwe Uwaegbute, disclosed that Lagos State was chosen as the host state for the maiden edition of the NTTCE because of its well-structured, strategic transport policies and management, which placed her ahead of other states of the federation.
