Technology experts have stated that remote work has the potential to reduce unemployment in the country.
According to the Chief Executive Officer of Alluvium, Taiwo Ojo, remote work will not only create employment opportunities but will also unlock the potential of the African continent.
He added that Nigeria could break into a large technological market by adapting and adopting cloud-centric architecture.
The Alluvium boss spoke at the 2023 Cloud Connect, a technological/ICT summit organised by the firm in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, recently.
He said, “Cloud Connect serves as a clarion call for Africa to bridge the technological gap and harness its vast potential through digital transformation and cloud adoption across various sectors.”
He added that companies, employees, and governments alike in Africa, including Nigeria would benefit immensely because of the high youth population.
Ojo continued, “The remote work market, we believe is $50bn. What that means is that there are people who can be here in Ekiti today and working for companies around the world and earning dollars here in Ekiti.”
