Massive response to Asaba ICT park space

24 September 2013, 10:30Augustine Osayande

 Abuja - The Delta State has reported an overwhelming response for space at the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Park in Asaba.

The eagerly-anticipated centre is scheduled for completion in the next four years.

Senior State officials said construction of the multimillion-dollar park was progressing well.

“Reputable IT organizations in the country and beyond are jostling for tenancy at the park,” Sunny Ofili, the Special Adviser to Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan on ICT, said in Asaba.

He was hosting senior officials from SAP, the German-headquartered technology firm.

It is expected that the ICT park would create 15 000 jobs and generate N5 billion for the state annually.

Meanwhile, Ofili welcomed the partnership with SAP.

SAP Senior Director for emerging markets, Amoruso Michele, also said that the state stood the chance of getting value for its money through the alliance.

According to him, people from the Delta State would be trained at the firm’s Enterprise Support Academy.
He added there would be significant reduction in cost as the programme would be hinged on transparency.

“The state needs to get to the level where it will become a reference point in the area of IT to other Nigerian states and given this development, it will soon become an enterprise reference point in the whole of West Africa,” said Michele.
