The Management of the Computerize Nigeria Project (CNP) will launch the biggest ICT Mall in Africa, in Abuja, in the first quarter of 2010.

This ambitious project which commenced last year, and is nearing completion, is designed to sustain the promotion of Digital knowledge Democracy as an ingredient in structuring Nigeria as a knowledge driven nation in the information and knowledge century.

The Abuja ICT Mall will place Africa on the digital map of the world following the trail blazed by Mecer of South Africa and Zinox of Nigeria.

This was revealed by the Corporate Communications Adviser of the CNP, Mr. Echika Ezuka in an interview with Newsmen in Lagos.

He said the integrated ICT Mall shall host the best ICT product brands in the world in direct partnership with developers, manufacturers and other OEMs.

This Mall will also host the largest integrated ICT Support Centre in Middle East and Africa so that ICT products users can get instant support for faulty products or upgrades without delay. According to Mr. Ezuka, this mall will reduce the total cost of the ownership of different ICT products in Nigeria as all details are being finalized with different ICT products manufacturers.

The over six floor digital mansion will also be the main communication and knowledge centre in Africa and is expected to host an ultra modern digital auditorium and a precision knowledge research laboratory which will give impetus to the promise of the Founder of Computerize Nigeria Project -Mr. Leo Stan Ekeh to place Nigeria solidly on the global digital map.
