The Partnership is part of the State Government’s strategic focus on the Ekiti Knowledge Zone initiative and ensures that Ekiti develops a talent pool that will make it an attractive destination for both domestic and international technology companies. It also reinforces the Ekiti heritage of being a knowledge-driven society.

The Global Skilling Initiative is Microsoft’s response to help 25 million people worldwide acquire new digital skills for the COVID-19 economy. The initiative identified the global economic crisis, a different hybrid economy that solves to stem the economic downturn. Using IT tools like Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Microsoft has identified the 10 most available jobs and created training modules to upskill participants to better qualify for those jobs. The Global Skilling Initiative will end March 2021.

Ekiti is the first state in Nigeria to partner Microsoft to provide access to the Global Skilling Initiative for its unemployed population as part of Governor Kayode Fayemi’s strategic actions to mitigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
