The Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) has unveiled a set of young technology innovators and creators at a transforming Tech Ideas into Business Ventures Exhibition, showcasing the innovative projects developed by its Mentees.
Delivering her remarks, the Chairman of the Governing Board of CITAD, Professor Amina Kaidal while acknowledging the provision of a conducive environment for harnessing talents describes the initiative as one of a kind.
“This thing that you have started here is just the beginning. These kinds of things are very rare that even the government cannot provide the environment. What CITAD is doing is worth emulating even by the Government and philanthropists alike. If we can collectively do this Nigeria wouldn’t have been the way it is.
“It requires a big mind to execute things like this. I am really grateful and I must say don’t hide your talents. You are exemplary leaders to everyone especially youth like you.”
While praying that the talents among the youth would be seen and promoted, she called on CITAD to keep putting them through the technicalities of their chosen innovative ideas.
