He said since the concept of the Fourth Industrial Revolution also known as Globalisation 4.0 was first introduced by the World Economic Forum at its Annual Meeting in 2016, the awareness on how businesses and nations can tap into the phenomenal has been spreading.

“The fear that Nigeria is about to miss out of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the advent of “cyber-physical systems” involving entirely new capabilities for people and machines, may not be entirely unfounded going by the level of awareness across every sector of the economy,” he said.
