From CWG’s corporate head office, the students made their way to the hardware and infrastructure arm of the Company, where Dayo Abegunde, AGM CWL Systems was on hand to receive them. He alongside his team of Business Managers exposed the students to the solutions and infrastructure driven by CWL Systems . In reviewing the processes of CWL Mr. Abegunde pointed out the important relationship between hardware and Software, stating that hardware cannot be sold unless a Software is purchased.
