The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday said the innovative tech ideas coming out of the North East are indeed silver-linings to the insurgency that had ravaged the region.

The Vice President stated this during his opening remark at Yola, Adamawa capital when he launched the Northeast Innovation hub.

The North East hub is focused on Humanitarian solutions aimed as addressing the crisis situation of the area in the last several years.

The idea is to provoke tech-based innovative ideas to tackle the challenges of IDPs in the states affected by the insurgency.

In his opening his remarks, Osinbajo said  the innovative tech ideas coming out of the Northeast are indeed silver-linings to the insurgency that had gone on here.

“I am completely convinced innovation is way forward for our nation. And this is not only about ideas but so much has gone into planning and execution.

“More innovation hubs and centers are to be opened across the country including in 6 universities, he stated.
