21st Century Technologies Limited, Nigeria’s information technology powerhouse has repositioned its operations to solve some of Nigeria’s toughest challenges.

The Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr. Wale Ajisebutu, who made the disclosure in Lagos recently, said: “Nigeria’s socio-economic challenges includes: power and energy infrastructure, food security and agriculture, wealth creation and employment, mass transportation, land reforms, security, and education, and that each of these challenges has significant negative impact on Nigeria’s economy.”

He, however, said the company has developed sets of solutions to address and shape the present and future of Nigeria and Nigerians.

“Central to all these are tailor-made solutions to address these challenges. They are indigenous solutions with global standards. We believe that Nigerians deserve the very best. That is why the solutions are local to address local challenges” Ajisebutu said.

According to him, “Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions remain the vital instrument that can be used by Nigerians to enhance service delivery strategy and bring about innovations for the development of the economy.

“That is why the solutions have been developed by some of the world’s best brains taking into consideration the Nigerian environments, because we cannot copy what work in other climates and expect them to work perfectly here.”
