Speaking to Arise TV news, he says “the jobs of the future are not the ones that are being taught in the regular university today.

According to linkedin, by 2030 25% of the world’s working population would come from Africa. And the jobs for these young ones do not even exist today. So the skill sets for the future job should be what we are teaching our kids today.

But unfortunately, that’s not the situation. Africa is still laughing behind, trying to leapfrog the economy. This is the reason we designed the Cyber Future Academy, to train the African youth for the job of the future, so we can utilize the opportunities that the 4th industrial revolution presents to the world”.
