“He didn’t tell us he was coming, but we have a lot to do together as regards entrepreneurship in technological innovations,” Mr. Tijani said.
“We’re a technology innovation firm and he met with us to discuss how to support those building technology locally and software developers and also listen to their challenges,” Mr. Tijani said. “He also told the children about how he started his business and impacted some knowledge in them.”
“Also on this trip, he would get to know more about Nigeria and understand the market and our culture and our people,” Mr. Tijani said.
