If you are wondering if this is a post on software engineering or machine learning, it is not. It is my perspective on shaping a city. I spent a few days in Akure, the capital of Ondo State - a state in South West Nigeria. Ondo State is known for its agriculture(Banana is super cheap there), it's Budding technology eco-system, and the civil service. Life in Akure is comfortable and much more affordable when compared with Lagos state.
I see affordable housing, food and a vibrant University community as a luxury. or more importantly, the building blocks for a new economy. As new industries spring up, one question keeps coming up.
How does Akure improve it's domestic export? How can Akure attract people from crowded Lagos to come back home and create a successful economy?
