==== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has announced plans by his administration to relaunch the Lagos State Residents Card, to create a database containing the records of Lagos residents.
Sanwo-Olu disclosed this via a statement at a meeting with the state’s stakeholders on security matters held on Monday at Ikeja, during which he said that the card would be a critical part of the state’s security structure, as it would help generate information on residents’ identity.
“This database will form a critical part of our security architecture, as it will ensure that we know who is who, at any point in time,” the governor said.
However, modalities for the registration had not yet been set out as at the time of filing his report. The Lagos State Residents Registration Agency, LASRRA, was signed into law on June 27, 2011.
