NCC to site N500 million ICT Park in Ibadan

Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is making plans to establish a N500 million ICT in Ibadan this year, its Chairman Prof. Adeolu Akande revealed.

He said the ICT park being funded by the NCC would create job and empower the youth and provide innovation and digital fabrication laboratories for the ICT innovators and entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into products and prototypes.

Akande revealed this while hosting the Executive and members of Omo Ajorosun Club, a socio-cultural group in Ibadan, who were at his residence to honour him with an award of excellence as part of activities marking the club’s 41st year anniversary.

His words: “The parks would serve as commercial hubs for the ICT capacity-building and digital skills, create employment and entrepreneurial activities and facilitate smart city deployment across the country.

“The ICT parks, which would be located in each of the six geo-political zones, involved the construction and equipping of fully-functional tier-4 digital industrial complex with fast Internet service and constant power supply.”

Akande, who expressed gratitude to the club for deeming it fit to honour him, said he would always identify with Ibadan which is a town of his birth.
