Niger State Government and the Zenith Bank of Nigeria Plc have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for building 100 capacity Information Technology Centre (ICT).
Governor, Abubakar Sani-Bello, who signed the MOU at the Government House in Minna, the state capital assured that the state government would ensure continuous partnership with bank.
The Governor noted that the project would go a long way to provide job opportunities for the teeming youths, improve the Internally Generated Revenue of the state and as well add value to the educational sector of the state.
According to the Governor, “As part of your Corporate Social Responsibility, you have decided to give us a very special ICT center and from the master plan it will have positive impact. We sincerely appreciate this support as it will engage the youths in terms of empowerment and at the same time improve education.”
The governor went on to add that, “Apart from increasing our IGR in the state it may also provide job opportunities for few people. Whatever business or structure that comes into the state even if it employs one person it is something. It means taking one person out of the labour market. So we will try to encourage and support interventions like this.”
