The Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) has described late founder of Omatek Computers, Mrs Florence Omatule Seriki as an ardent promotor of local content, reports ITRealms.
President of ATCON, Mr. Olusola Teniola in a tribute made available to ITRealms, said that the Nigerian Information and Communication Technology (ICT) space stopped breathing following the confirmation of the death of a woman who, he said, was passionately and tirelessly championed the drive for Nigerian Local Content in the person.
ATCON, Teniola said, received the news of her death as a rude surprise because she died when the entire Nigeria ICT Industry needed her sheer determination, business acumen and deep insight to drive the Nigerian Local Content to a positive conclusion.
“To us at the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria, Engr. Mrs. Florence Omatule Seriki can be described as an entrepreneur per excellence, a patriot, a goal getter, a nationalist, an industrialist and an advocate of Nigerian local content,” he said.
Also, ATCON said its teeming members pray that the Almighty God grant the husband, the children and the entire family of late Engr. Mrs. Florence Omatule Seriki, the fortitude to bear this irrevocable loss and also grant her gentle soul eternal and peaceful rest.
“No doubt, she will be greatly missed,” Teniola said.
