The agreement, which was signed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House in Abuja, Nigeria's capital city, is an opportunity for the company to improve on its technology transfer to Nigeria.

"We are looking at developing existing hubs and to see how we can empower those who are already working in the various ICT hubs," Osinbajo said.

According to him, some of the ICT organisations were already growing into a silicon valley in Yaba, Lagos, and many people are engaged in programming and developing applications.

He said the government would expand the scope of technology and incubate the start-ups of young people to advance ICT. He said the development of ICT was an opportunity for people to get quick and decent jobs to enhance their lives and the economy.

He commended the Chinese group for the partnership with the government, and assured that the government would work with it to achieve success.
