Tech is the present and the future, it will unlock the enormous potential that exists within the country (Nigeria) and the continent (Africa) as a whole.

It will be interesting and exciting to see in the next few years the negative and positive effects of Technology in not only Nigeria but in the continent as a whole. Will tech have a domino effect on necessary infrastructures like power supplies and communications? Will it discourage a fairer political system? Or will it enrich the life of an average Nigerian that lives on less than a dollar a day?

Efficiency drives the world. In terms of socio-economic development, Nigeria is struggling to catch up! The world has evolved; Knowledge Economies are drivers of change across the globe. Technology is a global tool not tied to geographical boundaries. If Nigeria is to make its mark, there is a need for more Tech-driven innovations. We cannot continue to be adopters of technology, we need to be drivers.

It is reasonable to say tech in Africa is in its infancy in respect to widespread usage and sustainable business models. The reality is that wholesale adoption of ‘what works elsewhere’ wouldn’t necessarily fly on the continent. My take is that ‘competent’ founders with a long-term view of the market will eventually thrive.

I believe technology will help Nigeria leap forward in unimaginable and unprecedented ways. The technological revolution will not be a step by step process but a leap forward to the forefront. By actively and continuously increasing our resources, talent and tools available to us, we can and will achieve a whole lot more.

The future of African tech especially Nigeria is very promising. And I strongly believe that the Nigerian tech talents in Diaspora will play a vital role in driving this future hence bridging the gap and alleviating the brain-drain problem. With the right goverment policies, infrastructure and investments, tech in Nigeria will definitely take flight.
