The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) may have bailed out the grounded Rivers ICT Centre located on Aba Road opposite Pleasure Park.
Ogbuku, who was taken around the training facility by the director, Rivers State ICT Centre, Aleruchi Akani, pledged that the NDDC would ensure that the centre worked optimally.
The NDDC boss thanked the Rivers State governor for approving the use of the ICT centre for the training of youths, pledging to upgrade the facility. He assured that the NDDC would replicate the training centre in all the nine states of the Niger Delta region.
The ICT Centre was built by Zenith Bank and handed to the then Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi administration for use for training of Rivers youths in IT. This was the time the administration promoted the computer and information technology revolution.
He stated: “We believe that the project under the Project HOPE is more holistic and sustainable. What we are doing here is partnering with the Rivers State government to ensure that this ICT Centre is put into proper use. This centre will be used effectively because, through Project HOPE, we are looking at making the Niger Delta region a technology hub. Under Project HOPE, we are focusing on technology and agriculture.”
