Nigerian Tech Visionary, Leo Stan Ekeh on a Mission

Nigerian tech visionary, Leo Stan Ekeh’s mantra has always been to empower generations. For him, any country that would want to thrive and develop should leave a lasting legacy for its future generations.

Last week, as gathered by Society Watch, Ekeh, the Forbes Best of Africa leading Tech Icon, philanthropist and Chairman of Zinox Group, Africa’s largest ICT conglomerate, as part of his mission to empower future generations, donated a state-of-the-art training centre to Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri and St. Augustine University Epe, Lagos State.

Both centres, named the Leo Stan Ekeh Foundation (LSEF) Centre, were unveiled at a grand ceremony, held at the respective institutions. The two events were graced by their respective Vice Chancellors, DVCs, Senate and Council Members and very esteemed academics of the respective institutions.

The LSEF Centre at Imo State University is poised to offer a range of training programmes tailored to meet the evolving needs of today’s workforce. These programmes include the Finishing School, Entrepreneurship Boost Training, and specialised courses in Technology and Artificial Intelligence Viability. By equipping students with these essential skills, the centre aims to prepare them for success in their chosen fields and foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.

The Vice Chancellor of IMSU Prof. U. U. Chukwumaeze (SAN), praised Ekeh for executing the futuristic knowledge centre. He also talked about Dr. Ekeh’s intervention during their times of need, including his generous donation of computers for the institution to scale accreditation.

Also, at the St. Augustine University centre, Epe in Lagos, it was a great display of the power of technology equipped with top-of-the-range All-in-One Zinox Computers, Tablets, Smart Boards etc.

The most interesting part of commissioning the two centres on the same day, within the same time, was the use of quality Artificial Intelligence deployed at these centres and remotely powered from Zinox Group Headquarters (Yudala Heights) on Idowu Martins Street, Victoria Island, where Ekeh monitored happenings at the two campuses and delivered his speeches.

He was consistent with his statement – that he was determined to build a new generation of Nigerians who would have the capacity to alter their destinies and defend their wealth. He also assured both institutions’ management that he shall turn the centres in two years as completed AI-powered centres so that every student before matriculating must spend eight hours at these centres.
