Arriving at the AI in Nigeria Conference event venue with Rodger Werkhoven.

AI is just another tool, a very powerful tool but one that is only as good as you have trained it to be. And to customize AI, you must first understand, as a sovereign, what future you desire. If we fail to reach this agreement, not just within government circles but as a nation, we will be invisible passengers in the emerging universe. -Abubakar Suleiman – Sterling bank MD
