Lagos - A prominent Ogun information and communications technology expert urged the government to set up post-incubation centres across the state.
The Centre Manager of Ogun State Technology Incubation Centre, Dr John Oni, said students at the centre had since completed their course duration but remained idle in the centre as they had not been employed.
He regretted that the situation had made it difficult for the centre to admit more people since those currently at the centre had stayed put.
Oni advocated that as a way out of the situation, government should consider establishing post technology incubation centres where those who had passed through the incubation centres could be further engaged.
“Currently the Ogun State Technology Incubation centre is not taking in any new set of interested persons. Those at the centre have nowhere to go.
They have since finished their programmes and because there is not adequate plan to accommodate them out there. They have simply remained at the centre. Presently, we cannot take more people into the centre because those already. They have nowhere to go," he said.
Oni urged government to find ways to encourage those who had genuine innovations by setting up more technology incubation centres across the country.
He said that such centres could produce technologies that would further revolutionize the country and set it on the path to economic progress.
