Tinubu Outline Plans For Digital Revolution to Transform Nigeria To First Smart Nation In Africa, Register to Become an Ambassador
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a presidential contender for the All Progressive Congress (APC), has outlined plans for digital revolution to transform Nigeria into the first smart nation in Africa and has set up the Smart Nation Programme Office and website to lead the charge in reviving the nation.
Although it was not easy for Tinubu to get the candidacy to pursue his “life-long aspiration” of becoming president of Nigeria, he recently teamed up with a group of young people in the technology and innovation industry to add the Smart Nation Initiative to his agenda.
“This is a continuation of my plan and policies for the new Nigeria,” Tinubu remarked during the meeting, which was held at the campaign headquarters of the ‘Youths In Tech Support organization’ in Abuja.
“I am in charge of the national rebirthing agenda, which aims to champion the new Nigeria of our dreams by establishing goals such as becoming Africa’s first world-class tech-driven state with a transformation plan to become a Smart Nation, utilizing technology to transform how our families, businesses, and people live, work, and enjoy”. He mused.
“We must lead the way in envisioning, imagining, and innovating in Nigeria if we are to fully appreciate the boundless opportunities that come with the Smart Nation and digital realities.” He added.
According to Mr. Josh Audu, Director General of the support group, “the national rebirthing campaign is open to all youths in the country. The Bola Ahmed Tinubu Center for Smart Nation Initiative is a major step ahead of other political parties and presidential contenders, revealing openly that Asiwaju is a master builder and visionary who would take Nigeria to new heights with his love of technology and creativity. We have built a website where volunteers may sign up to become Smart Nation Ambassadors and learn soft skills to help spread Smart Nation awareness in their neighbourhood.
