“The event is an opportunity to celebrate the men and women, organizations and institutions who are the driving force of the tremendous wind of technological change that has engulfed our nation – Nigeria.

And the deployment of ICTs now pervades every sector of human existence from health to education, to business and even government. Nigeria is no exception to this global trend,” he said.
