Google as a leading digital service provider and the world biggest search engine is in collaboration with MindtheGap Foundation (a nonprofit project based organization) to deliver a digital marketing training across the nation to equip and empower 400,000 Nigerian youths with digital skills.
Nigerian youths have been identified as the most promising resources and the strength of the country. The youth demography makes about 70% of the Nigeria’s total population. Therefore, if actively inspired towards leveraging digital media for promoting and creating jobs, they tend to bring more value to the economic system of the country beyond the oil.
It has been proven that the digital economy is a platform for growth for the entire Nigerian economy, if well harnessed. Digital economy will be the driver of agriculture, transportation, health-care/medicine, education, banking and finance, among others.
