The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo went on a tour of Tech-related Companies in Lagos yesterday to further encourage the growth of technological innovations for the market place in Nigeria.
Much to our delight, the Vice President, as part of his #VPTourOfTech, visited Africa Fintech Foundry in Victoria Island, Lagos, an initiative of Access Bank established to grow financial technology innovations in the country.
Prof Osinbajo expressed his pleasure at the fact that Access Bank is not only making money from the environment but is also able to give back to the community by helping to set the pace of creating platforms that would encourage major technological innovations that others can follow.
