Expert Blames Nigeria’s Slow Growth on Lack of Data

UNTOLD NEWSThe Chief Executive Officer of Havilah Merchants Limited and Havilah Storage Limited, Mr Lanre Adesuyi has said that absence of a proper record and data management has been described as one issue undermining economic and social development in Nigeria.



Adesuyi made this known at the product launch of Bruynzeel storage systems and solutions in Lagos.



According to him, the failure of government and the citizens to keep and manage records is one reason why Nigeria cannot develop.



“Nigerians need to effectively manage data and information. Some individuals do not even know how to keep personal records, let alone accessing public records,” he said.



According to him, these problems and challenges are the core reasons why Havilah has taken up a mission to make information management and storage accessible to all.



“The need to proffer genuine solutions to this problem is why we decided to partner Bruynzeel, the leading storage systems and solutions company in the world. Our partnership is strategic and that is why we are going to offer private and public institutions the best in storage technology from Bruynzeel.”



Adesuyi confirmed that this is the first time that Bruynzeel is coming to this part of Africa and that Havilah Merchants Limited is the sole distributor and technical partners of Bruynzeel in West Africa.



Rob Reijnen, Global Export manager of Bruynzeel, said Nigeria is key to the company’s global growth and that Havilah is a strategic partner to this expansion.



He assured potential customers of Bruynzeel’s determination of delivering the best to its customers.
