Mr. Obaro in a brief admonition at the gathering, shared how Remita has stayed sustainable primarily because of being single minded. According to him, focus and persistency are keys to achieving whatever goal one has set.

Mr. Chris Uwaje – Former President of the Institute of Software Practitioners of Nigeria, expressed delight at the launch of the facility.
