He also said more mobile phone assembling and manufacturing plants should be built across the continent, This will create employment and  boost  African economies.
His talk was based on the topic ” The power mobile technology and media in changing the mindsets of Africans” and was held at the The 16th annual African Business club Forum at Harvard.
