The Federal Government has been charged to urgently increase investment in technology to improve digital penetration as well as the Nigerian economy.
A software developer and the convener of Texpo, a platform for technology exhibition, Mr. Adetolani Eko, stated at 2018 second edition of technology exhibition tagged ‘Driving affordable and sustainable innovation’ in Lagos.
Texpo, which comprises four young entrepreneurs is a platform that helps tech entrepreneurs without recognition, fund, and partnership to make their ideas come to reality.
He said: “Federal Government has more resources to drive this sector than those of us at Texpo are doing now. Even though there is some good initiatives in the country to improve on digital penetration but I will say that they can do more, the gap is still there. There is the need to partner more business organizations to make a greater impact on the sector.”
