15 Kogi indigenes who studied ICT in FPT University, Vietnam on full scholarship provided by Kogi State Government are back in the state upon completion of their studies.

According to one of the beneficiaries, Monday Abdulawal, the graduands wish to notify the Governor of the state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, that the 15 students from Kogi state have successfully completed the degree programme in Software Engineering at FPT university, Vietnam. He said the beneficiaries will like to pay the governor a courtesy visit to show appreciation for the government support and to present themselves to the state government.

He added that himself and other graduates are ready to add their little quota to the development of Kogi state.

It will be recalled that four of these Kogi students had the best project thesis upon graduation. The four star students are; John Adebiyi is from Ogori/Magongo, Kashim Idris hails from Dekina. Monday Abubakar is a native of Okene while Jibrin Abdulkarim hails from Dekina local government area of Kogi State.

During the time studying Bachelor of International Software Engineering (ISE) in FPT University, they were motivated by a desire to foster the business development in their home nation. Based on acquired knowledge and experience when using electronic commerce services, an e-commerce platform has been developed as their capstone project.

Realizing the difficulties in purchasing traditional product, they have been developing a website that help other people to easily buy and sell this kind of goods online. This project was inspired by the e-commerce models as Chotot.vn, Lazada or Zalora. With the reasonable adjustments, the website will provide users a convenient trading platform to stimulate their trading activities.

Another Kogi student at the Vietnamese institution, Usman Ohinoyi, believes they have acquired enough knowledge to help kick-start the drive to make Kogi State the Silicon Valley in Nigeria.


“We are planning on making Kogi the Silicon Valley in Nigeria all things being equal. We here have seen it all, it’s not a big deal with the right resources and minds”, he said.
