The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), in association with Microban Standard Communications limited have put together a software development competition they’ve tagged e-Solve.

From their website, e-Solve aims to expose Nigerian software entrepreneurs and give them visibility.  The focus for this year’s competition is Health or Education on E-governance.  As with all things Nigerian, geo-politics have found a way to play a part.  The best apps from each geo-political zone are chosen first before the winning app is chosen at the centre.

One more thing, there are no cash prizes for this competition.  Winners will be exposed on such platforms as GITEX and eNigeria.  I have to confess to being unfamiliar with both.  The aim of the competition is “to encourage software entrepreneurs to do more” and other such laudable objectives.

If you’re still interested, you should apply here before midnight Saturday 27th September 2014.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
