  1. I wholeheartedly love The Youth Empowerment and ICT Foundation by Jim Ovia. It is a foundation that is purposely designed to expose Nigerian’s youths on ICT, because IT to say is extremely important that the youths must have basic knowledge of it. For instance, a graduate who does not have knowledge of computer may be denied of getting a job in the organisation which he/she has written to. Hence, I beseech all youths to therefore strive in having basic knowledge of IT (Information Technology). Thank you.

  2. Nigeria have the knowledge, but we need software development kit, we are good in terms of ict stuff, but lack of encouragement.

  3. I applaud this ICT programme by Jim Ovia, I wish I knew earlier so I could be a part of it, this are the kind of things am interested in. Anyway, I wish to be informed on subsequent programmes coming up. I know one day Nigeria will be well known for great achievements in ICT all over the world.
