A Member of the Communication Team of the NPP, Eric Amoako Twum has said that; it is about time Ghana becomes the Silicon Valley of Africa following the announcement of Twitter setting up its Africa Headquarters in Accra.
Mr. Amoako made this statement on 'Good Morning Ghana' on Metro TV this morning when he was giving his opinion on the announcement made by Twitter to establish their Headquarters in Africa at Accra.
He said that Google, IBM, Uber, and other global tech companies have set up their Headquarters here and now Twitter is also following suit therefore, it presents a lot of opportunities for the youth and a need for us to revisit our school curriculum.
"We have some brilliant engineers in this country. Some have created fantastic products which are being used globally.
It is about time that Ghana becomes probably the Silicon Valley of Africa." - he said
He added that Rwanda, Nairobi in Kenya, and even Lagos in Nigeria have a strategic plan so, it's about time Ghana also put in place a strategic plan to compete in this era of technology.
