The Lagos State Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology (LAMIST) said it has completed the first phase of a project to reduce Internet connectivity costs.

The Commissioner of LAMIST, Olatunbosun Alake, disclosed this while enumerating his ministry's accomplishments at the 2024 Ministerial Press Briefing on Monday.
