Tunde Ajia recently had an article published in Oxford Urbanists, an organisation of global thinkers and practitioners. In the article Tunde examines the infrastructure challenges and opportunities arising in Nigeria during a period of unprecedented growth and economic expansion. Tunde undertakes a detailed review of different infrastructure sectors identifying particular sectoral challenges and common cross-cutting themes. Tunde also notes the particular strain that the COVID-19 pandemic is currently placing on Nigeria’s infrastructure. Tunde concludes by calling for an urgent re-examination of a wider range of infrastructure delivery models, including public-private partnerships, in order to leverage developments in innovation and learn from experiences elsewhere in the world.
