ILESHA—West Africa’s biggest ICT and phone manufacturing company, RLG has increased its foothold in the industry with the commissioning of a 50 million US Dollars Technology City in Ilesha, Osun State.
Called the RLG/Adulawo Technology City, the world-class facility which is already operational will be involved in the training of youths in the assembly and repair of the various electronic devices as well as also produce these devices from its facility. In addition, it is expected to create over 10,000 jobs both directly and indirectly.
Speaking at the official launch of the City, Mr. Roland Agambire, Group Chairman of RLG noted that gone are the days where oil was the mainstay of world economy, that ICT was the new money spinner and the RLG/Adulawo Technology City is an ambitious project that will play a major role in the technology revolution that is sure to come to Nigeria.
He noted that the dream of setting up such a facility was propelled by the leadership and vision of the state Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, whom he stated supported the idea from the outset especially because it has as its main goal the creation of jobs and the transfer of technology.
He stated that although the African continent is the wealthiest, it has not been able to maximise its potential and RLG as a Pan-African company has the ambitious dream of creating wealth for African youths and leading them out of poverty through technology.
