Make sense of your reality.

I’d love to have enough facts in tonight’s article to replace the storytelling, but time won’t allow it.

Africa is a land of tremendous possibilities, especially given our numerous issues. As a result, resolving them will result in enormous riches for the general public. There is only one issue to consider and solve.

With a population of 1.26 billion able-bodied individuals and a growth rate of 3.4 percent, we are one of the world’s fastest-growing populations, with 60% of us under the age of 25 in a fast-paced, technologically advanced environment. There are so many possibilities available to us.

Surprisingly, we have an estimate that Africa will continue to have the world’s youngest population by 2100, with a median age of 35.

Let’s combine those facts, starting with the fact that Nigeria had more than 154 million internet users as of December 2020, the largest figure in Africa. And, despite the fact that Africa has the lowest internet penetration (now 18%) compared to the global average of 30%, it is expanding quicker in terms of adoption and distribution.

In the future, the possibilities for what can be done in Africa are virtually unlimited. Shortsightedness and a lack of understanding of what to build and how to do it will, nevertheless, be a problem. There’s also another opportunity: if you can educate us on what to build and how to build it, we’ll pay you handsomely!
