Nigeria Yet To Take Advantage Of Young Talents –Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo  has lamented that Nigeria is yet to take full advantage of its young talents.

Addressing the 6th Kaduna Investment Summit tagged “Kadinvest 6.0”  yesterday, the Vice President said there was need for Nigeria to focus on developing a knowledge based economy with human capital developed to become a productive asset for profit.

Osinbajo said rather than natural resources, well developed and nurtured human capital, was the invaluable asset sought after globally, especially in ICT and technology sectors.

Speaking on the theme of the summit, “Towards a sustainable knowledge based economy’ the VP said: “The focus today must be developing a knowledge based economy. The knowledge based economy referred to stands for human capital development. Education and knowledge can become productive assets to be sold for profit rather than natural resources. Digital data, digital solutions to improve agricultural yields, digital platforms to provide online study. It is possible to move from where we are to knowledge economy. Millions of data in terabytes are stored in chips, 1,000 megawatts of power can be stored in a battery. The future of financial technology is not in banks. Nigeria is becoming technology investment solution hub in sub Sahara Africa.”
