He added, “This competition was a great way for students to learn and develop their ICT skills by exposing them to some of the top global ICT executives and the leading international provider of ICT solutions. We are confident that the experience they have gained in this journey will contribute to the creation of qualified national cadres that will benefit our entire nation in the near future, and we look forward to more exciting initiatives.”
