In his words, he said, " The importance of Technology in our lives have become a subject of increasing awareness. Technology is evolving at a very fast pace. Our grandparents grew up in a society with no telephone; our parents in a society in which the newspaper was the first and television was the last source of information. Today, we live in a world of internet. And the new generation is in the wireless world. As a result, the world around us also has changed dramatically over the years. This dramatic change in the field of ICT is a result of innovations in the field of science, defence and business. These innovations have reduced the sizes of the technological tools and increased the speed in which they operate to process data and communicate information. With this fast pace of evolution, we therefore need to be informed and equipped with necessary skills to live in this changing world. Technology plays a vital role in defining a child's ability to succeed both in school and throughout their lives"
 
" The Ogun Kids Tech Club would be able to initiate Basic Literacy in the Digital Age, Digital Literacy can change the world, World of Innovation Creativities & Confidence
