Kaduna Electric Boss Advocates Tech Transformation

He made the charge while speaking at the just concluded round table discussion titled ‘How Innovation Drives Entrepreneurship: The Case for SME’s and Start-ups’, organised by PAN, Verdant Zeal in conjunction with Kaduna State Government.

Alhaji Abubakar, who doubled as chairman of the occasion, also charged universities and other research institutions in the country to channel their energies and research programmes towards meeting industries’ needs and adding value to indigenous products so as to make them more competitive in the global market saying, “We must think for the future while addressing the current challenges.”
