The Tech Centre is widely expected to boost Nigeria’s relevance in the global technology race and shore up the country’s march to technology independence.

For the first time, Nigeria will play host to the latest global technologies including those not normally available in Africa, offering all classes of visitors a first-hand experience of new gadgets, solutions and infrastructure that would have previously required a visit abroad, thereby saving corporate organizations, government establishments and individuals money or scarce foreign exchange expended on these trips.

Also raising the excitement for the launch of the Tech Experience Centre is its status as one of the greatest achievements in Nigeria’s technology history and a huge confidence-booster in the Nigerian economy, despite the challenges faced by the current administration which has shown greater commitment in leveraging technology in building a digital economy for all Nigerians.

Meanwhile, the auspicious project cited within the prestigious Yudala Heights on Idowu Martins Street, Victoria Island will be flagged off by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami who is expected in Lagos for the official commissioning of the centre.

Also expected to attend the launch are stakeholders from the technology sector, corporate egg-heads and other dignitaries, not exceeding 50 in line with the current guidelines on public gatherings occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nevertheless, the event will be streamed live to millions of Nigerians via various digital channels.

Already, a number of globally-renowned international tech giants, all of whom will be housed within the Tech Experience Centre, will provide real-time information, support and expertise to visitors and other prospective customers, eager to be acquainted with the technologies on the ground.

Quite significantly, the unveiling of the Tech Experience Centre resonates with the recent call by the Chairman, Zinox Group, Leo Stan Ekeh on the Federal Government to declare October 1st 2020 Nigeria’s technology independence day. Ekeh, a serial digital entrepreneur, had based his recommendation on the giant strides recorded by the country in the area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

‘‘October 1st 2020 is traditionally Nigeria’s Independence Day. It is a day that commemorates Nigeria’s emergence as a sovereign state. Considering the massive strides recorded so far in our journey to technological emancipation, the Federal Government should strongly consider declaring October 1st Nigeria’s technology independence day,’’ Ekeh had suggested.
