Nigerian’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has opined on the need for Nigeria, and by extension Africa, to up their tech game by becoming steady producers of their technology products and not just consumers to enable qualifications necessary to harness the opportunities the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) presents.
Osinbajo who made this emphasis, spoke through his Special Assitant on Innovation, Ife Adebayo, during the launch of DigiConverge, a one-stop digital convergence platform that provides fit-for-purpose services in e-broadcasting and global content syndication.
Speaking on the theme: “Unlocking the benefits of the 4th Industrial revolution”, Osinbajo noted that becoming producers of technological products will accelerate the growth and development and also the economic value of the country.
Osinbajo described the newly-launched Digiconverge as an example of Africa being a producer and not just a consumer of technology products, adding that the government would continue to support initiatives that place Nigeria on the path of growth. He further called on the private sectors and academia to join in and not be left out by working with the government to maximize available opportunities.
According to the Founder and CEO of DigiConverge, Celestine Achi, DigiConverge is an indigenous all-in-one digital convergence platform that offers a wide range of services that ensure business sustainability through cutting edge technology.
