Plateau State Government has taken a great leap of faith , technologically speaking by establishing the Plateau State Information Technology Development Agency which would railroad the state to ICT relevance. Not yet done, the State appointed David Daser as the man to pilot the affairs of the young agency. With his remarkable achievements in the tech space, David’s appointment can be termed “square peg in a square hole “, and it shows that the state government means business!
Seriously, disruptors don’t come nicely, they come with a bang! Doing their thing and wanting their thing to be done! David Daser is one of those guys that you can say he ain’t the slacking type when it comes to the ICT ecosystem. He literally knows his onions and also he is slicing them nicely.
Having one of the most robust and functional ICT incubation centers in Jos City, known as nHub, Dave over the years has made a lot of folks to change their perception of Jos as a city of the potatoes , onions and nice environment to a city that can be associated the current realities – information communication technology (ICT). nHub has been able to groom some of the best world class coders and software developers, thereby changing the narrative of the Northern Central City of Jos .
With this appointment, it has shown that the government believes in youths and also they have come to understand the current realities that youths are the driving force and having a well groomed and grounded ICT expert to pilot the state’s ICT ecosystem is vital. With David’s appointment, one can be rest assured that in few years time, Jos would be a city to be reckoned with in the area of ICT capacity building .
