Microsoft has marked its fifth year of 4Afrika initiative by hosting a showcase event for the media in Lagos.
A statement indicated that the Regional Director, Microsoft, Amrote Abdella, and the Microsoft Nigeria Country Manager, Akin Banuso, shared details around the history and impact of the initiative in the region, as well as broader insights on how Nigeria was progressing in terms of its digital transformation.
Abdella said, “Nigeria is an important innovation hub – one which is largely influencing the digital transformation of West Africa.
“As technology becomes a larger part of our lives, businesses and industries, it is essential to ensure meaningful and inclusive adoption. This can only be achieved by ensuring that youths, entrepreneurs and governments have affordable access to the Internet, relevant digital skills and opportunities for innovation.
“Our three-pronged approach is empowering every person and organisation to take advantage of the technological age.
