General Electric Nigeria has presented an Information Technology laboratory to the Public Administration Department of the Nasarawa State University as part of the first phase of a proposed partnership with the University.

The IT laboratory is part of the company's IT4Charity corporate social responsibility initiative. 

The initiative was in partnership with GE Volunteers and equipped the university with 40 high powered laptop computers and projector among others.

Lazarus Angbazo, GE Nigeria CEO, said, “Our corporate philosophy is about localisation, digitisation and partnerships as a means for building a sustainable future. This donation to Nasarawa State University ticks those three boxes. The times are changing rapidly than it has ever been and we must be prepared for it.

“We believe that partnership with a prestigious institution as yours especially the public sector program takes us a step closer to put the next generation of Nigerian policy leaders by empowering them with the requisite skill to navigate the fourth industrial revolution.

Angbazo said GE’s investment will ultimately contribute towards improving Nigeria’s technology readiness from its present status.

Dignitaries at the event were His Eminence the Sultan of Sokoto, Sultan Abubakar Sa’ad and the Emir of Keffi and Chancellor of the University, Shehu Chindo Yamusa who lauded the project.
