The Country Manager of Microsoft Anglophone West Africa, Emmanuel Onyeje has commended the government for its efforts towards making Information Communication Technology (ICT) a key driver for national development.

He noted this would enable the youth to be equipped and empowered with modern ICT skills that will enhance their knowledge and capability in the use of modern technology.

Speaking to the media during Microsoft Open Door Agenda on the theme, “Technology as a key driver in delivery business in Africa”, Mr Onyeje was full of praises for the government for the huge investment it has made to take teaching and learning of ICT to the grassroots level, calling it laudable and recognising ICT in Ghana as one of the best in the sub-region. He said Ghana was among the few countries in the sub-region with good ICT experts capable of developing IT programmes to meet international standards, adding that it was time Africans made use of the local ICT industry to influence the opportunities provided by the revolution in technology to enhance efficiency, accelerate job creation and promote business growth in Africa.
