Nige­ria’s econ­omy will do well with in­creased ac­cess and ap­pli­ca­tion of tech­nol­ogy in the coun­try, the Vice Pres­i­dent, Prof.Yemi Os­in­bajo, has said.

He spoke at the just con­cluded Tech­plus 2016 held in La­gos,where he em­pha­sised that na­tions emerged as eco­nomic pow­er­houses based on their abil­ity to use sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy ef­fec­tively.

Os­in­bajo, rep­re­sented by the Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant to the Pres­i­dent on Job Cre­ation and Youth Em­ploy­ment, Mr Afolabi Imuokhuede, said that ac­cess and ap­pli­ca­tion of tech­nol­ogy was im­per­a­tive in today’s so­ci­ety.

The chair­per­son of Al­liance for Af­ford­able In­ter­net, Dr Omobola John­son, said that to pro­mote use of tech­nol­ogy, de­vel­op­ing coun­tries should in­vest in qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and con­tin­u­ous skills train­ing for work­ers and man­agers.
