The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, on Monday announced the creation of a new office known as Digital Entrepreneurship Office.

The office, which is to be manned by the Governor’s erstwhile Senior Special Adviser on Social Media, Mr Ifeanyi Aniagor, as pioneer Director General, is to serve as a centre for ICT development.

Obiano said the office will nurture and expand ‘technovation’ as well as serve as a bureau for social mobility in solving youth unemployment using the digital space.

According to him, the office will also coordinate all social media engagements of his government, which include popularisation of the achievements of the government to aggregation of feedback.

“The constructive criticisms on social media will not only enhance the participation of Ndị Anambra in governance but also ensure improved service delivery.

“Anambra State is at the forefront of the drive to unleash technology potentials on the people, in line with my vision to create a pool of young people that will dictate the pace in the digital space.

“Viable platforms are being created for Anambra people especially digital entrepreneurs and social media nomads to share ideas, explore opportunities and access tools, training and expertise for self development, value reorientation and wealth creation,” the Governor stated.

The pioneer DG, Aniagoh, is a graduate of Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
