At the Main Auditorium, University of Lagos (UNILAG) Akoka, Lagos, the National President, Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), Prof. Charles Onuwa Uwadia delivered an inaugural lecture as a professor of computer sciences of UNILAG. He spoke on the usefulness of software to economic revival.

 

The title of his talk was  ‘Software Systems: The Driving Force Behind the e-Revolution’ and he made a case that software could be fundamental in designing the nation.

 

Prof. Uwadia used the chance to call, for instance, on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and commercial banks in the country to set aside a special fund to assist start-up businesses, mostly in the area of software development.
