The landscape of ancient city, Ile-ife is about to experience a major change as the tourism zone, declared early in the year by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja 2), is set to welcome a mega project which will raise the bar of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) sector in Nigeria, as it has facilitated a $1.4 billion Technology City project in Ile – Ife, Osun State,
The Ooni of Ife has remained the catalyst as the entertainment sector has also experienced an awakening in the city.
In this instance he has brought renowned US – based business groups, SprintPort Technological Group and Image Consulting to partner with the house of Oduduwa, the Ooni of Ife, on the building of the technology, media and agriculture city in Ile – Ife with the Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) signed and the land for the project released.
Following this development, the representative of SprintPort Technological Group, Dickson Yemi Oluwasegun, disclosed that the Technology City, is designed to make Nigeria a leader in ICT, create millions of jobs, promote tourism, thereby boosting the country’s economy and fast tracking its technological development. ‘‘The Technology City is going to be everything technology integrated into the system, whereby the project is building itself. It is going to be an open and transparent environment so that people can feel safe and encouraged. It is also going to be an affordable living environment and it is not for the elite,’’ said Oluwasegun, a Nigerian born American with over 20 years history in ICT.
