A new ICT incubation centre has been inaugurated in Tinapa, Cross Rivers state, Nigeria, continuing the government support of entrepreneurs in the country.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, the governor of the state, Liyel Imoke, said the Information Technology Development Entrepreneurship Acceleration (iDEA) is the first of its kind in the geopolitical zone.
“It will provide young men and women with capacity and intellect to compete globally,” Imoke said.
Imoke said the fruition of the project is the actualization of a vision jointly shared by the federal government of Nigeria through the Ministry of Communication Technology and the government of Cross Rivers state.
The centre, which is a part of the Tinapa Knowledge City (TKC), will allow young people to showcase their abilities.
Imoke added it could transform the state’s economy and produce products that could compete on the global field.
