Digital Expert Academy has launched its new tech campus in Nigeria in a bid to promote the availability and sustainability of tech platforms for Young tech enthusiasts in the country.

The academy targets 10 million employable Nigerian youths that are skilled in the areas of digital infrastructure, technical skills, Data Centres and Key IT trainings over the next 10 years.

The Digital Expert Academy is championing the transformation into technology solutions as a service, with its tech-enabled managed services portfolio courses and a commitment to technology innovation, operational excellence, and partnership intimacy.

The chairman, 21st Century Technologies, Mr Wale Ajisebutu, who disclosed this in a press statement, revealed that the decision to kick off its digital expert academy stems from his long term ambition to train 10 million employable Nigerian youths, adding that, Digital Expert academy is positioned on helping young tech talents across Nigeria to unleash their full potentials and explore opportunities in the tech and digital ecosystem.

He also emphasised that the academy wants to address the issue of young tech talents wanting to leave Nigeria in search of greener pasture, a situation he coined as the ‘Japa Syndrome.’

The launching ceremony comes after almost nine months of continuous effort by the 21st Century Team and IT brand Architectural contractor ( SpaceIkon ) towards ensuring a smart and digitally inclined tech campus for all young tech enthusiasts in the country.

Mr. Wills Stevens, the consul general of the United States in Lagos, expressed his awe at the world-class establishment that the Digital Expert Academy represents and asserted that the facility has the ability to compete with other international tech institutions.

Dr. Obadare Adewale, the managing director of Stanbic IBTC Bank, emphasized the significance of Nigeria being the African giant as a vantage point for placing her youth as leaders in tech in sympathy with its rising youthful population as embraced by other growing countries like India and Japan.

Mrs. Ola Williams, the country manager for Microsoft in Nigeria, added that the Academy platform would widen the door for growing talents in the tech, creative, and digital industries in order to promote Nigeria as a powerhouse nation on the international stage.
