Policy makers and innovators in Africa have been charged to consider the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to identify and showcase indigenous solutions to the multifaceted challenges confronting the continent.

The Chief Executive Officer of Wits Tshimologong Digital Innovation, Johannesburg, Lesley Williams, gave the charge while speaking at the 2-day maiden virtual Annual Breakfast Dialogue of fourth edition of the Aspire Coronation Trust (ACT)  with the theme: “Tech for Good: Fostering Social Innovation and Digital Investments for Transformative Change”.

Williams challenged them to consider the pandemic as an avenue to explore African solutions to the problems.

According to her, the problems arising from the COVID-19 outbreak across the continent in the wake of global economic decline has resulted in developing nations putting their national interests first, adding that Africa, like the rest of the world, is caught up in the same COVID-19 problem and its attendant’s challenges.

The panelists were drawn from technology-driven organisations in the Nigerian economy while discussants included; Professor Olayinka David-West, Academic Director, Lagos Business School; Nkemdilim Begho, Managing Director of Future Software Resources Nigeria Ltd; and Bosun Tijani, CEO, Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB).
