President Bola Tinubu says education is Nigeria’s foremost tool against poverty.

The president, who received a delegation from the global tech giant, Google, said his administration would leverage digital technology to create Nigeria’s desired socio-economic progress that is necessary to transform society.

He said: “We are here to shape our tomorrow, today, and I’m going to do it. Our youths represent over 65% of the yearning development age in Nigeria. We take education very seriously, and that is the foremost tool we have against poverty. The digital economy and telecommunications represent the future, and we are determined to promote it and your partnership with us to make it a serious development in our economic program is what is desirable. Our youths have the skills, they are brilliant, and they are good people,”.

Towards the realization of great progress in the sector, President Tinubu declared that he is bringing more young people into the administration to further drive his transformative efforts and called on Google to ‘come on board’ as a frontline partner in development. The President also stated that the prospective use cases emanating from the emergence of Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing must be harnessed, even as he emphasized that development is achieved in stages.
