Microsoft has highlighted its ongoing commitment to Nigeriaâ€™s economy at the opening of its new office in Lagos. Microsoft sought new premises due to its rapidly expanding staff complement and partner network, a reflection of the companyâ€™s local growth and expansion.
Microsoft set up the companyâ€™s first office in Nigeria in 2000 with just three workers. Ten years later, there are two established offices situated in Abuja and Lagos, with a network of over 1,000 Microsoft partners, actively contributing to ICT and the broader Nigerian economy.
Country Manager, Microsoft Anglophone West Africa, Onyeje said that Nigeria is a thriving market and an attractive destination for many international businesses looking to establish a presence on the Africa continent as well as tap into Nigeriaâ€™s incredible pool of talented people.
Chief Executive Officer, Alliedsoft, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, added that as a Microsoft partner, it is heartening to see the company make this kind of commitment to Nigeria.
