4 Agbakor said that the vision was to train 100,000 Nigerians on software development across the country.

5 “CvHub will focus on computer and ICT skills, particularly software development, programming, web design and others.

6 ‘’The hub is working to make young Nigerians become employable.

7 Many graduates cannot find jobs not because they are unlearned, but because they are lacking in some necessary skills.

8 ‘’COVID-19 pandemic has opened a lot of technological opportunities for those who have the skills.

9 “You can get a remote job overseas and earn in foreign currencies without leaving Nigeria,’’ he said.

He, however, said that there were limited available slots for kids who just completed JSS3 exams and university students at home due to ongoing ASUU strike.

11 Mrs Chioma Egbuike, a software developer, said that it was no more news that the world was evolving digitally.

12 According to her, China, Japan, India, and USA will continue to do well technologically because they engaged their little ones early.

13 Egbuike said that African countries were blessed in all ramifications but would only compete with the developed world when they engage children in science and technology.

14 Today’s world has gone beyond classroom; it is good that our students are academically sound, but there is the need for them to acquire digital skills.

15 “This way, they can solve the country’s numerous challenges and the world at large.
