O ba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ooni of Ife has commended Mr John Olajide, Founder, Cavista Nigeria, for his investment in upscaling Nigeria’s health sector.
Cavista Nigeria is a cloud-based healthcare software solutions firm in Nigeria.
Ogunwusi gave the commendation during his visit to the Lagos office of Cavista Nigeria on Monday.
This was contained in a statement issued by Olajide.
The traditional ruler said Olajide’s strides in creating advanced technology as a tool for development and job creation should not go unnoticed.
He said inspite the stereotype woven around Nigerian youths, Olajide had proven himself to be a worthy ambassador putting Nigeria on the world map as a problem-solver.
He noted that Olajide, also, founder of leading global healthcare technology company Axxess, a global partner to Cavista, was setting an extraordinary example for other business leaders.
” The purpose of my visit is to show my unflinching support for him and task the government to encourage technology businesses and entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams by creating an enabling environment.
” At a time when the best brains of our young people are relocating out of Nigeria due to a harsh economic climate, Olajide is in Nigeria utilising his wealth of experience to create opportunities for job creation.
” He is ensuring consistent development of technology solutions in healthcare delivery across Africa.
” Olajide is doing a lot, not only for himself but for the Nigerian youths he has engaged,” he said.
Ooni of Ife said Nigeria required more than 65 per cent of its total young population to take the lead in instituting modern governance and leadership.
According to him, his establishment of the noblest economic outlooks was capable of competing favorably with any nation in the world through entrepreneurial spirit.
” Since Olajide created Axxess in 2007 as an IT consulting firm, it has created and pioneered innovative healthcare solutions using cutting-edge technology to solve complex challenges in healthcare in North America and Africa.
” Today, Axxess is trusted by more than 9,000 organisations that serve more than 3 million patients worldwide.
” Olajide’s story of struggles and challenges resonate with me and strikes a chord with a lesson of always believing in one’s dreams
” His toughness and doggedness exemplify the widely-held belief of ‘no pain, no gain.’ Indeed, there is the promise of greater value and reward for the price of persistent and intentional work,” he said.
Earlier, Olajide said with investments in Cavista Nigeria, where more than 250 software engineers were currently employed, the firm provided cloud-based solutions that can be used anytime, anywhere.
He said this was to ensure people can receive the absolute best healthcare efficiently and in the privacy and comfort of wherever they call home.
He appreciated the Ooni for his words of encouragement and playing his fatherly role during the visit.
” I believe that when we can harness the power of our diversity, we will replicate our success around the world in Nigeria at Cavista,” he said. (NAN)
