Avni while describing Osinbajo as an excellent partner of the organization, said Google has trained three million Nigerians since its pledge to train 10 million people in Africa.
He said: “Obviously, we have an excellent partner here (Prof. Osinbajo) who has been doing God's work, it is thanks to leading partners like him that we are able to be helpful in communities in which we operate.
Avni went on to note that Google’s 2022 target of training up to 10 million people in Africa was feasible.
Osinbajo on his part said the federal government will support any partnership that addresses literacy and educational challenges which includes the problem of out of school children and girl child education.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that five big technology companies in the United States of America have been ordered by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to disclose details behind their acquisition of smaller businesses.
This is following concerns raised about reports of unfair and anti-competitive behavior from Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. The five technological companies have been accused of unfairly using their clout to defend market share or expand into adjacent markets.
