Represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, at the 2019 annual retreat of Committee of E-Business Industry Heads (CEBIH), held in Abeokuta, Abiodun noted that the State was recently awarded the best State in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) by the Federal Ministry of Communication, saying most of his administration's policy and programmes would be technologically driven.

          
He stated that, the Tech Hub established by his administration would serve as a clearing house for the committee and a viable training ground for youths and children on mastery of ICT.

          
"The State Government is ready to support technology in all aspect, Ogun State is Digital capital of Nigeria, where you have largest concentration of Industries and best ICT government institution in Nigeria, technology is going to be value factor of this administration", he stated.

In his welcome address, the Chairman CEBIH, Mr.  Stanley Jacob said the retreat has been a veritable platform for the gathering of stakeholders in the country's digital technology and payment space, to assess the progress made and championing the cause for future growth, in line with global trends.
