Nigeria Gradually Becoming A Hub For Internet Companies
The Internet, since its invention in the 1960s has gradually grown into a desired necessity in our daily lives.
An average person uses the internet 10-15 times a day while a
great number of individuals almost never get off it. The Internet has revolutionised “the media”, “the way we connect with each other” and even “the way we do business”.
Multi-billion dollar companies such as Google and Facebook are the leading internet companies of today.
