The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has announced Rack Centre, Tier III-certified data centre as the winner of its Local Content in ICT, in its 2018 annual excellence award.
The chamber said the award to Rack Centre and other winners was the outcome of painstaking selection from numerous entries received for the award category and backed by feedback from industry market intelligence, adding that corporate governance was also a major consideration in the evaluation of nominees for the award.
Mr. Muda Yusuf, director-general, LCCI, explaining the rationale for the award, which is in its fifth edition, said “the objective is to recognise, celebrate and promote private and public institutions that have exhibited the core values of best business practises, business sustainability and have positively impacted the society.’’
Also, Vincent Nwani, director, Advocacy and Enterprise Development, LCCI, said, “Rack Centre has made sustained and dedicated commitment to the Nigerian’s economy by its huge investment in data centre and network connectivity thereby saving the Nigerian’s economy millions of foreign exchange on an annual basis, and providing the much needed employment for the youth, while also enhancing data security and reliability for corporations across the African continent.’’
The LCCI said it prides itself as a credible platform for such an award event, which cuts across all the sectors of the Nigerian economy, adding that the award was to showcase those organisations that have made remarkable contribution to the development of commerce and industry and the economy at large.
