    Adeugba said, “I personally came to Ekiti to express the commitment of the Federal Government of Nigeria to support the state in delivering economic and knowledge free zone.

    “Government is committed to making Ekiti home of block chain technology, where technological companies and other industries that have things to do with education will be ready to invest.

    ”Ekiti is known for education and ideas innovation and this is where we are going to show the world that Nigeria has arrived.
