Zinox is ICT Coy of the year @ Titans of Tech-08

Zinox Computers was at the weekend honoured with yet another award, this time as the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Company of the Year 2008 at the Titans of Technology awards.

The award announced among many other sectoral prizes in the City Mall Onikan-Lagos, was bent on recognizing pioneers of ICT in the country.

Also, the event saw Zinox chairman, Dr. Leo Stan Ekeh, honoured as one of the nation’s Legend of Technology alongside such industrialists like Chief Don Etiebet, Late Chief Tunde Odegbami, and Chief Chima Onyekwere, as well as Dr. Isaac Odeyemi.

Zinox chairman, Dr. Ekeh was given a medal of honour for his perseverance in the distribution of hardware and the provision of solutions culminating in the birth of Zinox.

“The first internationally certified computers in Nigeria and PC brand of the years 2006 and 2007,” according to the organisers.

Dr. Ekeh’s initiative to computerize Nigeria did not go unrecognised as the organisers noted his determined passion to provide affordable IT equipment to many homes, schools, and work places in Nigeria.

Accepting the awards, Dr. Ekeh explained that he has virtually received all known awards in the land but that this particular award was reassuring because the organizers of the Titans of Tech award have shown a rare understanding of the industry.

He also said that the award would encourage more patriotism in Zinox especially in the area of quality and pricing of IT products.

The company further said that the award was as a result of world-class quality standards and the relentless drive to enhance IT penetration in the country.
