You recently deployment in UNILAG, let us know about it?
We visited UniLag and introduced our Proprietary software for Law Students and it was given an LPO for large supply. We basically want to make learning easier for Nigerian law students that was why we developed such a solution for them and what we have seen the acceptance is encouraging. It has shown that the students are very open to new ways of doing things. The law solutions for students made it easier for students to learn, research their legal reports, case studies etc.
You recently developed a software that has to deal with accounting and ICAN what is the level of reception?
Yes Organizations and Tertiary institutions including Polytechnics down to secondary schools have widely accepted it, as we have the best solutions to easiest way to pass ICAN Exams. We as an IT firm is constantly asking critical questions on how we can improve the lots of the society especially the Nigerian students . the ICAN solution looked at accounting, accountancy and booking keeping as a subject. We made learning these courses easier for students from secondary school where these courses are offered all the way to tertiary institution be it Universities or Polytechnics, we all covered all the areas of accounting to professional level which is ICAN (Institute of Charted Accountants of Nigeria) and the professional body is impressed with this software.
You are the first indigenous software in Nigeria and maybe West Africa to build an anti-virus software. What prompted this and how has it been?
We have been on the Anti-Virus Software development for about 7 years now, and now we have formally incorporated a Company for it TJTEK ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE MAKERS to separate its affairs and development from our usual software development business. The Nigerian antivirus software market is dominated wholly by foreign products. Ours is to find ways to start changing the narrative and bringing our indigenous solutions to the fore. We have also observed the capital flight that occurs as a result of buying this software, we want to make the desired impact in the market.

We face challenges from power supply and conducive working environment, we currently have found a temporary solution to the power supply as our technical department have developed and constructed a temporary engine to power all our systems. We have to look inward to solve some of these things.
Do you think that the Nigerian government is doing much to support indigenous IT Firms like yours?
Well for now the IT firms in Nigeria is not many and the Government seems not to concentrate on that part of Information Technology , I might be wrong but we are yet to see concrete efforts on the side of the regulators of IT to protect indigenous firms in Nigeria. We have operated under a strenuous IT environment and we pray that the government give us some level of concessions in terms of services and projects.
