Microsoft has revealed their intentions known of planting their office in six regions in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by Tolu Ogunlesi, the Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital and Media.
According to a statement released by Microsoft, “Microsoft has partnered with the Government of Nigeria to accelerate the nation’s effort in becoming a more digital economy!”.
The statement disclosed that the partnership is anchored on three pillars: increased connectivity, upskilling and job creation, and digital transformation.
This is coming weeks after Twitter sidelined Nigeria to choose Ghana as its headquarters, despite the fact that greater number of the application users are Nigerians.
