    5th September, 2023

    Igbinedion University, Okada, has partnered with Ehizua College of Creative Technology to expand its scope in digital literacy and programs.

    The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Lawrence Ezemonye, PhD, FAS, stated this on Tuesday during the inauguration of the Ehizua creative tech hub in Benin.

    The university president reiterated that the partnership was to further translate the desire to transition from analog to digital training.

    He said the university had incorporated digital disciplines and digital literacy in all aspects of its programs.

    “With Ehizua Hub now, we have the latitude to expand the scope of engagement in our digital literacy and digital program.

    “The program will go a long way in enhancing our desire to join and producing future-ready graduates.

    “We have been in partnership for the last 13 months, and even before then, the university had partnered with various IT academies like Microsoft Word, Mikrotik, Cisco, and Huawei.

    “This is to make sure that our digital skills are in tandem with global demand.

    The hub is an international platform for both students outside and within the continent,” he said.

    Also speaking, Mathias Ehizua, Chief Creative Officer of the hub, said the partnership would create access for students of the university to learn creative technology and be job-ready.

    “It will create a pathway for them to get employment within Nigeria and overseas.

    The university will be able to offer skill programs through the Ehizua hub.

    The university will benefit in terms of certification and transnational education,” he said.

    His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said his government is committed to the promotion of the use of technology and digital tools in enhancing the socio-economic development of the state.

    Mr. Obaseki, who was represented by the Commissioner for Digital Economy, Science, and Technology, Hon. Ogbeide Ifaluyi-Isibor, made this known during his welcome address at the official commissioning of the Igbinedion Hub/Ehizua Creative Technology College in Benin City.

    Hon. Ifaluyi-Isibor said, “This initiative adds to the numerous tech startups operating in Edo State, helping to promote innovation through technology in our state, which in turn increases the economic viability of our local businesses.

    “As a ministry, we will continue to promote, support, collaborate, and partner with MSMEs in Edo State to improve their productivity and boost the digital economy of our state.

    “Our desire is to leverage ICT to boost business in all facets of our economy, and we are, as a matter of fact, attracting more investors into our state, and our people will benefit from it”.

    The high point of the ceremony was the official commissioning of the hub and a guided tour of the facility.
