The Tokunbo Abiru Constituency Team (TACT) Foundation and its technical partner on Senator Abiru Innovation Lab (SAIL), the Co-creation Hub (Cc-Hub), a dedicated innovation and tech company that makes use of social capital and technology to accelerate economic prosperity had a contract signing ceremony at the SAIL facility in Ikorodu Lagos on Tuesday 24th May, 2022.
The Co-founder of Cc-Hub, Mr Bosun Tijani, Manager, TACT Foundation, Mr Hamzat Jimoh signed the contract papers in the presence of Senator Mukhail Adetokunbo Abiru, his Legal Adviser, Abiodun Anibaba, Special adviser on Constituency Matters, Dr Saheed Ibikunle and Coordinator SAIL Programme, Mr Adedeji Abisola.
SAIL, an initiative of the Tokunbo Abiru Constituency Team (TACT) Foundation, is a dedicated innovation and tech lab that is providing relevant technology, business and digital skills to teach enthusiasts and young entrepreneurs across the Lagos East Senatorial District.
After the signing ceremony, Bosun Tijani showed up in one of the classes of SAIL, Tech Talent Development class, to motivate participants who are currently learning software engineering at SAIL.
Tijani informed participants of enormous opportunities in the tech space, especially in software engineering. He encouraged them to dedicate themselves to the training stressing that they could never go wrong with the training.
He said, ‘’Most of the big guys you see today started learning how to develop on their mobile phones but you guys have programmes like this when you have laptops made available to you to learn.
‘’For you guys, there is no limit. The Internet might not be the fastest but you have everything you need to be whatever you want to be. You know people can even learn how to build an airplane now on the Internet. Knowledge is ubiquitous. I truly know that no one in this room will be a lesser person in society because you have gone through this programme. You have all it takes to be great.
‘’In Tech, any part you decide to go into, you will win. If you tried to build a product and it ended up not being successful you would have learnt so much. And that is what someone building a successful company in tech needs to hire you. The only thing you need to check is your own threshold. Do you have the threshold to go through the pain? Try as much as possible to collaborate with yourselves.
‘’My journey contributed to the way I did Cc-Hub. Because some people would have done the same thing with the desire to make money but for me, I was building Cc-Hub because I see it as a platform to enable people. I don't care what background you are from and care whether you appreciate what I have done for you or not. My goal is to be the platform we help people explore. And Cc-Hub has helped a lot of people to explore. I am fulfilled because that is what I set out to achieve.
‘’If you look at my journey, there is nothing you say you have done that I have not done. But I was only conscious not to do bad things in my journey.
