Today, as captured by KadInvest, innovation has become a key distinct feature that can define long-term business success, which in turn leads to economic growth and consequent job creation. Fostering innovation has however often been the privilege of wealthy nations, given the high R&D costs associated with it and the investments in human capital required to succeed in this undertaking.


Innovation in Africa however, has paradoxically existed despite a prevailing developmental environment plagued by deficits in skills, technologies and infrastructure. Innovation on the continent stems from the urgent need to find immediate and sustainable solutions for critical problems Africa has been facing, which threatens to hinder its next phase of development, if not handled appropriately. It also relies on Africa’s extensive supply of ideas, which emanates from the minds of its own people. With the fastest growing population on earth, Africa has more human capital potential than anywhere else on earth. Increasingly well-educated African youths have the motivation and potential to think of suitable African solutions to widespread African problems. Entrepreneurship also plays a major role and according to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, among the 10 countries with the highest number of start-ups in the entire world, five are African. Innovators on the continent are clearly living in a new era of opportunity where there is an enormous need for innovation.


A major component of the current administration’s Restoration mandate is creating jobs and building a prosperous society for all. In line with this, Kaduna State Government has demonstrated its unwavering commitment towards developing its human capital, infrastructure, policies and reforming the business enviro
nment to foster innovation and facilitate the easy inflow of investments into the State. These reforms and projects – combined with Kaduna’s natural potential, teaming youthful population, and the solid pedestal of committed and visionary leadership – have clearly precipitated remarkable progress. Even more satisfying is the fact that according to the World Bank, Kaduna is now the overall best State in Nigeria to do business in. (Abdin, 2019). If Kaduna can develop an integrated innovation ecosystem, it stands to supercharge its economy, its society and the livelihoods of millions in the State.


   

 

 

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu

 

FUTURE OF ICT IN NIGERIA
"Today, Nigerian ICT sector is at the cross roads. The direction we choose will determine not just our future but also the legacy we leave behind for future generations of knowledge workers in this country, who have the creativity to dream impossible dreams and the determination to translate those dreams into reality"...
- Baba J Adamu

“Given the emergence of new regional dynamics in development policy and practice, Arewa region MUST fine-tune current regional development perspectives and to develop new ones that are not only more in sync with the present and future global context but with the governance systems being currently adopted that are becoming more and more decentralized and grassroots oriented. States Governors within the Arewa region must come together to create and adopt the Arewa Regional Economic Plan with emphasis on a balanced approach to development and opportunity for all diversity irrespective of one’s tribe, social class, religious belief and even political affiliation; and establish targets for economic growth of the entire region taking advantage of our Demographic Shifts, which will fuel the growth of new sectors, markets, and service lines in our communities. The ability of our diversity to build strength and unity is the power that will propel the region and consequently, the Nigerian industry, into new dimensions of performance and inclusive growth. Catalyzing Inclusive Growth Through ICT-enabled solutions in healthcare, education, financial services and public services can drive socio-economic development and inclusion of more than 30 million citizens each year, faster, cheaper and more effectively than traditional models. The economic plan should be built on current regional opportunities, collaboration and innovation linking States macroeconomic models with regional development and economic plan termed: Regional Econometric Model”President ACRD
