The Ubomiri, Imo State- born Internationally renowned ICT Entrepreneur, Mr Leo Stan Ekeh has decried the indifference of South-East State Governors and the Leaders toward development of digital infrastructures in the region.
The Chairman of Zinox Computer stated this during the recently concluded Enugu State Investment Summit tagged ‘Oganiru’.
Ekeh said “I must state here that the Igbo are not ready for digital wealth creation as it is obvious that leaders in the region are not ready to transit to building the knowledge economy which holds the key to achieving this,” .
Continuing the Zinox Boss states “Digital wealth is the new mega wealth that rewards the effort in few months or years but you must create solid platforms to uplift your people.
“It is about building creative platforms for our kids and millions of today’s restive youths, which will channel their energies and passion towards what is termed today as true miracle wealth,”.
“Increased access to education as captured in the building of a knowledge economy, a clear change of attitude, visualising the bigger picture and liberalising access to information through Information and Communications Technology (ICT) are core essential requirements to achieving this.
“This is a century of results and not efforts and sincerely, no one was created by God to be poor in this century but government must invest in critical infrastructure for her people to benefit,” .
Ekeh had while expressing surprises on the near zero digital infrastructure in the region asked on how leaders in the region intended to create billionaires who would pay taxes in the near future without concrete investment in place to provide opportunities and grooming the youths.
