The restive youths of the Niger Delta region have no future in militancy or the cursed oil and gas trade that have turned not just the region but the entire Nigeria-state upside down. In this interview, the founder of Starthub Technology Limited, Mr Johnson Hanson says the future of the region rests on how sufficiently strong the young people are able to gain on ICT skills. Starthub is promoting an innovation centre in this conflict-prone zone, and also championing a re-orientation to make young people acquire ICT skills and get creative in the most profound sector that has revolutionised how we live and work. Anthony Nwosu, IT EDGE NEWS, captured Hanson’s thoughts.
