Google officials reveal plans to connect more Africans.

Published

on

Mr Taiwo Kola-Ogundale, the Communications and Public Relations Manager of Google West Africa, on Thursday said Google was working on new solutions to connect more Africans to the internet.

Kola-Ogundale said that the project would be perfected in collaboration with some partners, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.



Google is a U.S.based multinational technology company that specializes in internet-related services and products, including online advertising technologies, search engine, software and hardware.

Google recognizes the fact that connectivity to the internet has been a challenge to the increasing population of Nigeria and Africa in general and Google Station cannot solve it alone.

“Google Station alone cannot solve the problem of connecting the major population of Nigeria and Africa to the internet.

“No single technology or company can tackle the variety of connectivity challenges in Africa alone. Access is a major challenge for many living in countries like Nigeria.

For the many Nigerians and over four billion people who are offline around the world, because they cannot afford the solutions or they have poor connections, so we have to invest in a wide range of new technologies.

“We have the Google Station to Project Link in Uganda and through access-related projects like Google Station; our aim is to help more people get a reliable and consistent web experience during their daily routines.

Our plan is to keep working on new solutions with partners who will work with us to enable as many people as possible to get online,” he said.

Kola-Ogundale recalled that in July, Google announced its plans to launch 200 Google Station sites in five major cities across Nigeria by the end of 2019 to provide free Wi-Fi to millions of people.

According to him, the cities are Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Kaduna and Ibadan.

PM Abiy reiterates Ethiopia’s decision over latest clampdown.

Published

on

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has finally spoken on ongoing anti-corruption and rights abuse clampdown stating that there was not going to be any backing down let alone retreat.

A statement from the Abiy’s office issued in Amharic tasked citizens to rally behind the development as a means of ridding the country of lawlessness and criminal elements.

State-affiliated FBC reported that the statement titled, ‘Let’s Fight (the) Cancer,’ said the government was bent on bringing people behind injustices to book.



The statement said the underlying objective of recent arrests was to get rid of Ethiopia criminals. “… criminals do not care about ethnicity, country, or morality; they only care for themselves.

“The key to justice is to create a system for innocent citizens to live in freedom and dignity while criminals are held accountable and punished in accordance with the law,” the statement read in part.

New Zealand denies refusing refugees with holiday visas entry.

Published

on

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on Friday, rejected allegations that the country’s government was blocking refugees who wished to travel into the country from Nauru on visitor visas.

Nauru’s president, Baron Waqa, also claimed in an interview with Australian media that he had also personally brokered a deal for New Zealand to accept 80 refugees currently located on the island.



“It’s incorrect to say that there is some kind of agreement for 80 specific individuals to take residence or visit,’’ Ardern told media at the East Asia Summit in Singapore.

“The request did not ask about whether refugees could visit New Zealand on holiday visas,’’ he added.
