David Daser, a graduate of Biochemistry from the University of Jos, is expected to lead the new agency through its initial growth curve, pursue a workable framework to make Plateau State a technology and innovation hub as well as work with government and other stakeholders to attract technology investment into the state.
Speaking to IT Edge News, David Daser expressed his readiness to expand the ICT ecosystem in Plateau state.
“We have worked ceaselessly for an industry fostered on commitment to country and young people. This new challenge offers an opportunity for further service to drive that vision that Nigeria and indeed, Plateau State can become the bastion of a new economy,” he said.
