    3 Million Jobs to be Created by Digital Economy in Next Three Years, says Nigeria's Minister of Industry, Trade & Investment

    Okey Enelamah, minister of industry, trade and investment, says three million jobs are estimated to be created by digital economy within the next three years, TheCable reports.

    The minister made this known on Wednesday while speaking at the ‘Invest in Nigeria’ summit in Silicon Valley, California, USA.

    “From the $20m fundraiser in Andela to $10m fundraiser in Flutterwave, to the $7m in SureRemit via a blockchain ICO, $1.1m in Piggybank. There are easy scores of these today and counting,” a statement by Bisi Daniels, his strategy and communications adviser, quoted him to have said.

    “Today we have brought you some of our best: from the government, from the private sector, technology companies, local finance, policymakers. I hope this leaves no doubt as to our commitment to establishing a winning partnership with you in Nigeria’s technology ecosystem.”

    The primary objective of the visit is to attract investments into Nigeria’s tech space. Enelamah is on the entourage of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who is on a working visit to the technology hub.
