Minister Tijani showcased Nigeria’s vast potential and highlighted the numerous opportunities available for business and investment in the country. His contributions during the ministerial panel on digital innovation were insightful, shedding light on Nigeria’s thriving sectors such as technology, agriculture, and manufacturing.

Bosun’s vision for building a middleware for government services could have significant implications for Nigerian entrepreneurs.

Despite the current economic challenges, Bosun believes that Nigeria holds great promise. His perspective is counterintuitive – to build something great, one must see the diamond in the rubble. He urged entrepreneurs to continue pushing despite all odds, drawing inspiration from Estonia’s history.

Bosun emphasized the role of Nigerians in serving their country with love, strength, and faith. He called for unity among Nigerians, irrespective of their faith, creed, tribe, or political affiliation. He stressed the need to set aside differences when necessary to secure victories for the country.

His closing words were a powerful call to action: “We must be ready to lay aside our differences, when and where required, to give our country the wins. So help us God!”

Bosun’s speech left a strong impression on the audience, underscoring his vision for Nigeria’s digital economy and the potential it holds for the country’s entrepreneurs.
