Seriki emerges Amazon of ICT development

The Group Managing Director of Omatek Ventures Plc, Mrs. Florence Seriki has been honoured with the Amazon of ICT Development in Nigeria Award at the National Daily Awards held last weekend in Lagos.

The organizers said in a citation read at the ceremony that Mrs. Seriki is truly worth celebrating, because she has made an outstanding impact not only in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), but across the width and breadth of Nigeria’s development landscape.

“Hers is a story of how unwavering focus for one’s passion in life can lead to unimaginable heights,” part of the citation read.

ITRealms Online recalls that Mrs. Seriki’s pursuit and ascent to success can be traced to how she followed her passion for the ‘new box’ to help train her bosses in her N.Y.S.C days on the use of the Personal Computer(PC) which only served as a decorative item on their tables at the time.

In addition, the organizers said from that moment, she has been unstoppable and this culminated in the establishment of Omatek Computers limited, the only company in Africa to manufacture computers and casings from Completely Knocked Down (CKD) components sourced from high class manufacturers thus making Omatek products of world class standards.

In his remarks while making the presentation, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, Dr. Ernest Ndukwe said the Award is in recognition of her immense contribution to the growth and development of the ICT sector in Nigeria and especially for excelling in a male-dominated industry.
