IBM has reassured Nigerians and other Africans of its commitment to skills and business development to improve collaboration and knowledge sharing among citizens.
The development will accelerate social and economic growth.
Uyi Stewart, Chief Scientist of the Kenya-based IBM Research Africa laboratory stated that the government should lead the way in the development of their countries and citizens.
“In all areas of human development, technology now exists to allow our people all over the continent to quit living in the past,” he said.
“It is important that government lead the way by becoming more efficient in the delivery of services to citizens and this can only happen when technology begins to be at the core of decision-making and public sector administration,” he added.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has repeatedly said government is desirous of quickly improving Nigeria’s ease of doing business status and by extension stimulating a pro-business, pro-development milieu for trade and commerce.
