Youthful Population Will Transform Nigeria Into Digital Economy Powerhouse, Says Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu declared on Monday that Nigeria is poised to harness the immense potential of its youthful population, propelling the nation into a global digital economy powerhouse. Speaking at the meeting of African Heads of State and Government during the 21st Replenishment of the International Development Association (IDA21) in Nairobi, Tinubu’s message resonated with hope and determination.

Represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, Tinubu outlined Nigeria’s strategic vision. He hinted at the nation’s ambitious plans to become a global hub for outsourcing talent within the digital and creative economy. With a median age of approximately 18, Nigeria recognizes the transformative power of its youth. The goal is not merely to boast of having the most unicorns but to serve as a beacon for innovation and talent.

“Our interventions in the digital economy have been extensive,” Tinubu emphasized. “We are preparing to serve as a global hub for outsourcing talents.”

The Nigerian government’s commitment extends beyond digital prowess. Alongside the digital transformation agenda, Tinubu affirmed Nigeria’s dedication to climate resilience. The nation aims to become an attractive destination for carbon market investments, recognizing the pressing call to action posed by climate-induced disruptions.

“Being a young country,” Tinubu stated, “we aim to become investment-friendly, fostering cutting-edge innovations and technologies.”

The summit’s communiqué, he believes, will reflect the collective dreams and aspirations of African and IDA countries, capturing their nuances and consensus. As Nigeria charts its path to recovery, it stands ready to embrace the future—a future shaped by its vibrant youth and a commitment to progress.
