Pan-African Information and Communications Technology company, CWG Plc has said going into 2021, it has put strategies in place that are aimed at supporting and enabling businesses in the northern part of Nigeria, using cutting edge technologies.
CWG’s Abuja Regional Manager, Mr. Cyril Omelu, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja highlighted such strategies to include fantastic value proposition, cost saving technology/solutions, professionalism, quality service and effective support system.
“Certainly, there are huge business opportunities in other parts of the country, especially the northern region and may see these opportunities stemming from CWG’s pedigree in the ICT market place. Our plans going into the next year is to support the region with technology so that people can transact their businesses with ease,” he said.
Admitting that there are challenges in the region, which include awareness, culture, illiteracy, poverty and insecurity, Mr. Omelu argues that with the re-engineered status of CWG, the current products and services offered will be embraced in other parts of the country and ultimately, enable their businesses.
He also noted that with the combination of positive government policies, technology can help to boost the growth of businesses in the region. Omelu added that the region needs initiatives such as ICT capacity building centres, Tech hubs and the provision of grants for Tech starts- ups.
It has become clearer that improving the ecosystem for entrepreneurship in Nigeria, will not only contribute to overall development, but also improve the socioeconomic status of youth and other marginalized groups. With CWG’s plan to roll out improved technologies, the industry has opened up yet another avenue for Nigerians to be impacted upon.
