The Federal Government of Nigeria has recently announced its plans to establish a digital technology program hub, which is to be called the Nigerian Start-up House, in San Francisco, USA widely known as the Silicon valley.

This move was announced by the Minister of Communications, Innovations and Digital Economy, Dr. Bosun Tijani, who confirmed that the project was approved by the Federal Executive Council in a meeting on Tuesday.
