Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has met with the incoming Minister of Communications Innovation and Digital Economy, Bosun Tijani.

Speaking about their meeting, Abiodun said: “While receiving the Minister-Designate for Communications, Innovation and Digital Economy, Dr Bosun Tijani highlighted several commendable initiatives undertaken by our government in the area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) development.”
The endeavours, Abiodun said included the establishment of a tech hub and the launch of the Digital Economy Infrastructure Programme, which involved the installation of fibre optic cables throughout the state.
He added that his government had also facilitated convenient internet connectivity in crucial sectors such as education and healthcare.
The governor expressed confidence that Tijani “would excel in his role as a proud representative of our esteemed state and the country as a whole,” given his “distinguished professional background and expertise.”
