Enugu State Tech ecosystem is well established and among the most developed in Nigeria. This is spurred by the unrelenting commitment from our visionary Governor which has provided a conducive environment for both the public and private sectors to thrive.
This year, His Excellency appointed a seasoned Technocrat, Mr. Ambrose Nwodoh as his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Science and Technology, one of only a few Governors that created such office in the country. The SSA interfaces with MDAs and the private sectors across the State’s Tech ecosystem to infuse and sustain the gains already made. Enugu State is truly on the part of becoming the technology hub of not only the South East but Nigeria as a whole. *Join me to appreciate our Governor, (The God’s Gift To Enugu State) by voting for him as the Digital Governor of the year 2021*.

Enugu State is truly in the hands of God. —-   Please share widely   ——-#ambrosenwodoh
