In an effort to increase productivity and hasten the socio-economic growth of the state, plans are being made to construct a technological hub in Aba, according to Governor Alex Otti of Abia State.
Alex Otti made this statement yesterday during a visit to his rural home in Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area, by Mr. Lazarus Mouka, General Overseer of the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement.
The governor declared that society is constantly creating and documenting new technological advancements and that the world has transitioned from the industrial to the information eras.
Alex Otti stated: “We are in talks with tech giants, and the government has plans to build a technology hub.”
“We are in the information age; the industrial age is over, if you have been following global developments.”
Alex Otti that people may virtually work, hold meetings, and conduct business anywhere in the world through technology.
According to Alex Otti, the emergence of COVID-19 has made it easier for technology to advance and have a greater influence on how society and our daily lives are conducted.
He noted that the administration was careful in constructing top-notch infrastructure in Abia and expressed a desire to create an atmosphere that would support enterprises.
High-level infrastructure development, in his opinion, is essential to raising the state’s GDP, lowering poverty, creating jobs, and boosting the ease of doing business rankings.
“This is the reason we are taking our time rebuilding Aba, and we firmly believe that once we do so, Aba will be able to produce resources that will enable us to rebuild the entire state,” he stated.
Otti encouraged the general overseer to continue praying for the Abian government and people, thanking him for his nice remarks.
Mouka had earlier declared that Otti’s appointment as governor of Abia was unmistakably proof that the people had chosen him.
He asserted that he was in the region to dedicate the Information, Communication, and Technology Center and the GSM Mall, which were both supported by the church.
He continued by saying that the church made the decision to return home in order to support development in the Southeast since it had helped advance economic growth in other parts of the world.
According to Mouka, this was the church’s method of encouraging residents of the Southeast to bring their money back home and aid in the region’s growth. In NAN
