Mr Ayorinde made the disclosure during a recent appearance on Frankly Speaking with Jola Sotubo.

“We’re already harnessing the power of social media. For me as a journalist and a media person, I believe the power actually lies in technology. Therefore, in communicating the programmes of Lagos State, in assisting in the management of the information and communications for Lagos State, and by extension for the governor, we can’t do this without the internet, without social media," he said.

“We’re aware of the fact that 65 percent of the people that we’ll be speaking to, at any point in time, are youthful, and they get their information first and foremost from social media, so we can’t neglect it.

“What we have done, is to upgrade the ICT/social media unit of the Ministry of Information and Strategy to a full department with a Director and with the full complement of staff and tools to be able to run an effective communications strategy for Lagos State using, relying heavily on social media,” he added.

Mr Ayorinde also spoke on Governor Ambode’s plans for easing traffic in the statesaying that the aim is to get as many commuters as possible off the roads and on to alternative means of transport.
