President Bola Tinubu has said his administration is prepared to use education and technology to improve the lives of Nigerians.

Tinubu spoke on Wednesday during a meeting with a delegation from Google West Africa led by Olumide Balogun, the director.

Speaking with the team, the president said his administration takes education seriously, adding that it is a “foremost tool” to fight poverty.

Tinubu asked the tech giant to partner with the federal government on the use of data in the public sector to enhance service delivery.

The president added that he is bringing more young people into his administration to drive his transformative efforts, while calling on Google to become a frontline partner in development.

“We are here to shape our tomorrow, today, and I’m going to do it. Our youths represent over 65% of the yearning development age in Nigeria,” Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, quoted Tinubu as saying.

“We take education very seriously, and that is the foremost tool we have against poverty. The digital economy and telecommunications represent the future, and we are determined to promote it.

“Your partnership with us to make it a serious development in our economic programme is what is desirable. Our youths have the skills, they are brilliant, and they are good people.

“We have been evaluating different proposals on database development, and you have critical information that can equally help the poor leverage on the use of data.”
