The award was presented to Governor Makinde by the Federal Government through the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Isa Ali Pantami.

Reacting to the development, Ajani said Governor Makinde’s investment in the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector has just been validated as the best in the country by the federal government of Nigeria.

“Nobody except noisemakers in the opposition parties in Oyo state will attempt to fault Governor Makinde’s record-breaking achievements in the ICT sector as an economic expansion enabler.

“The award is a testament that regardless of what the detractors think or say or are even saying in Oyo state, the state government under the leadership of Governor Makinde is not only getting things right but also aligning with the agenda of the government of the federation in term of the digital economy.
