Executive council members of the National Association of Computer Science Students (NACOSS), recently awarded Programos Software Group the most innovative and supportive Information and Communications Technology company in Nigeria.
Presenting the award to Programos at the company’s corporate headquarters in Lagos, Comrade Okoro Emeka Louis, National Public Relations officer of NACOSS said the award is a recognition of various efforts Programos has put in place to groom the youths, especially Nigerian students in the country.
“We are awarding Programos Software Group the most innovative and supportive Information and Communications Technology company in Nigeria today because there are clear facts and pictures of various programmes Programos has done to groom the Nigerian youths in the area of Information and Communications Technology,” he said.
He noted that Programos is not just doing the mere speaking, but is also doing the practical aspect of it with the full empowerment of the youths, which has helped some to become entrepreneur and are creating jobs for other youths.
Responding, an elated Mr. Emmanuel Amos, chief executive officer of Programos Software, said he is happy to be recognised yet challenged to do more to empower the youths, who most of the time don’t know how to approach the future after school.
He urged other organizations to come to the aid of Nigerian Students given that the current global trends in technologies now require extra-curriculum exposures into the future of education, work, health, transport, etc, and general e-content areas that can catalyze the increase in their true academic values as they leave school.
“Despite so much economic confusion, students have been charged to stay focused and still sacrifice as much as possible in self-development as there are brand new opportunities emerging in the technology sector that only the ‘patient dog will eat the fattest bone’,” he asserted.
