Mr Agambire’s award comes on the heels of the launch the $10bn Information Technology hub, the HOPE City, aimed at creating jobs for over 300 million youth in Africa.

“One thing we in Rlg believe in is the youth. I believe the youth are our future and currently we train and employ thousands of young men and women not only in Ghana but also Nigeria. I believe most of them will be assembling and fixing your Rlg phones and devices right here in Nigeria,” he said.
Mr Agambire’s Rlg Institute of Technology has already trained over 50,000 youth and persons with disability across Ghana.
The company currently has operational presence in The Gambia, Nigeria, China and Dubai.
