Northern Nigeria is fast opening up for development. Interestingly, technology is at the heart of it. Unlike in the past when western education used to be a taboo in northern Nigeria, the current crop of northern leaders is not only opening up spaces for such, they are going the extra mile of taking education to the women.

Kaduna state Governor, Uba Sani is one of such leaders. Whatever he did to attract the attention of tech giants, Google is reverberating across the entire Nigeria as technology and education enthusiasts gathered in the state yesterday to behold a new dawn.

Kaduna State Government, partnered Google and Data Science Nigeria for the initiative tagged AI for Beginners Learning Video Series. The series presents Artificial Intelligence concepts in Hausa, making some of the complex technology concepts more accessible and culturally relevant for the region. He said: “AI is not just the future; it’s the present. By equipping our people, especially our women, with AI skills, we’re not only paving the way for a more prosperous and innovative Northern Nigeria, but also laying the foundation for Kaduna to become a thriving tech hub.”

Director, Google West Africa, Olumide Balogun said: “This series marks a new milestone in our ongoing efforts to enhance AI knowledge across Northern Nigeria, fostering a broader understanding and application of AI technologies that drive innovation and create new job opportunities.”MTN posts N575bn pre-tax loss in Q1, blames inflation, naira devaluation
