Adebayo said this in Abuja when he received a delegation from Digital Africa, which paid him a courtesy visit in his Office.

He noted that the establishment of the centre will encourage investment in the ICT sector and complement the proposed ICT university which will also produce the required skilled manpower for Africa to partake in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
