A major technology project is set to be unveiled in Nigeria in the coming weeks.
TD Africa, one of the companies in the Zinox Group and Sub-Saharan Africa’s foremost technology distributor, is believed to be lead driver of this mega project.
Designed to attract global technology giants under one roof in Nigeria, the project will further deepen Nigeria’s rising status as an emerging force in the global technology race, said sources conversant with the project.
Details of the ambitious technology project are still sketchy but it is being touted as able to create a technology experience that will bring latest and cutting-edge technology to Nigeria.
TD Africa hinted on its social media handles that it is set to unveil a game-changing tech project. TD Africa is already showcasing video teasers of the upcoming technology project @tdafrica and @Td_Africa1 respectively.
On the social media pages of TD Africa, the company had also tweeted a picture with the hashtags Tech Independence and Coming Soon.
Meanwhile, Chairman, Zinox Group, Leo Stan Ekeh had recently called on the federal government to declare October 1st 2020 Nigeria’s technology independence day.
He made this call in a virtual chat with some technology reporters.
The serial digital entrepreneur, who has remained one of the foremost personalities in Nigeria’s technology ecosystem, 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.
