So today is the day! The four weeks of work that we have done culminates today in a presentation of our work to Mr Governor’s Executive Council (which includes his Commissioners and Special Advisors, Permanent Secretaries, and other guests of Mr Governor).

The team decided to do the presentation wearing traditional Nigeria clothing, which was very well received by our clients and the Council!

After some comments and introductions from the Governor as well as from the IBM General Manager for West Africa, the team gave their presentations on the 5 projects that we had been working on:

  • New Initial for Social Development (NISD) – a NGO (Presented by Bob)
  • Ekiti State University (Presented by Christina)
  • E-Schools (Presented by Peter)
  • E-Government (Presented by Cinthia)
  • Citizens Information Management System (Presented by Rodney)

I have to say that I was proud of everyone presenting! And for representing their teams and IBM so well. It was a great source of pride to be associated with such a great team!

After the presentations with Mr Governor, Christina and I took questions from the television press. I have a new appreciation for those who be interviewed all of the time!

So after our final presentations, we were graciously invited by Mr. Governor to a dinner to celebrate the end of the assignment and as a way to say thanks to the CSC Nigeria 6 Team for their work. The night was filled with a sense of celebration, notes of appreciation from all involved, and a fantastic dance performance by the Ekiti State Troupe. The evening ended with commerative gifts from Ekiti State and some very nice words relayed to us from Mr Governor.

Pictures from the fantastic night!
