The Commissioner said the retreat, holding from October 28 to October 31, would provide a veritable platform for the executive council members to brainstorm on government policies, procedures and programmes.

According to him, the retreat will evolve better means of serving residents.

"It will also concretise plans to turn Lagos to a smart city where emphasis will be on creating alternative modes of transportation.

"The cabinet is now ready to build on solid foundation already laid by executing policies that will keep Lagos ahead as the centre of excellence," Ayorinde said.

He said that the retreat would also be attended by the body of Permanent Secretaries and some select Head of Agencies.
