The ambassador highlighted how much the high education rate in Korea had directly played a role in the nation becoming an IT hub and key player in e-governance.

He also revealed that 22,625 public servants have taken part in the mission’s capacity training in e-governance at the training centers established in Abuja.

In the efforts of helping the education level rise in Nigeria, the ambassador mentioned that Korea had invested an amount of $5 million in Borno state, most especially to women and girls.

“The Korea-Nigeria bilateral relations have also led to the construction of the Abuja Model School for $15 million,” Tae said.

The deputy Vice Chancellor of Administration, Prof. Adams Sani, who represented the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Michael U. Adikwu, noted the university’s appreciation and expressed looking forward for a “fruitful and prosperous relationship with Korea.”
